In a Loss, Shamokin Found Some "D"

As losses pile up, it gets harder and harder to get a team to play hard the following week.  In Friday's homecoming game against Selinsgrove, Shamokin had a brutal time moving the football against the Seals with under 100 total yards and no touchdowns.

Selinsgrove amassed 223 yards and two touchdowns for a 14-7 win.  Inside the number, 182 yards came on 3 plays.  The Seals managed only 41 yards the rest of the way.  In the second half, I did watch a defense that had the confidence to win the game by scoring another touchdown or forcing a turnover.

The Indians go on the road to Loyalsock and Milton in the next two weeks and are home against Montoursville.  These games are winnable before the final 3 games against Danville, Shik, and Mount Carmel.

In a loss, it is still nice to see someone play with pride and determination.
