Post Game comments from Coach Peckham:
“It was a disappointing loss for our guys especially after having a halftime lead. We played much better team defense tonight, but had too many careless turnovers throughout the game and also did not keep Silver Bluff off the offensive glass especially in the second half. Credit our guys for continuing to battle throughout the entire game and late in the 4th quarter. We’ve got to continue to have intense practices and look to improve greatly as our schedule will continue to get tougher as the season progresses.”
