PINEVILLE, La. (KALB) - The Louisiana College Wildcats were back in action after their bye week against Mary Hardin-Baylor.
However, what seemed to be a chance to regroup and refocus turned into an avalanche.
The Wildcats hosted the Crusaders, and although they pretty much knew it was going to be a tough battle facing the number two team in the country, an 82-0 loss wasn't exactly in their plans.
Coach Justin Charles says the outcome wasn't the one they wanted, but there were actually was some good that came out of it:
“We definitely got outplayed and outmatched by what is the number two team in the country. The best thing about playing a team like that is you get to see what the standards of division three are from talent-wise, organizational-wise, and from every aspect of it that you can think of. We saw some bright spots, and we saw what our future holds in certain areas. You talk about the quarterback position, and you also see some young receivers that were a little bit more down the depth chart because we had young men that were sick last week, or injured. Some of the guys stepped up like Darion Johnson. These guys had to step up and had no other choice so they made the most of their opportunities by making catches here and there. Defensively, we had a couple of safeties that showed us what they can do so there were a few bright spots in there.”
