Coaches quote: “We need to do a better job of executing. But despite our mistakes, our team found a way to win,” said Glenwood coach Jason Gibson.”Kashe did a great job for us as did our fullback, John Burnett, who kept leading those running plays.”
“Our defense gave us a chance to win it (at the end), but we had a penalty and had to abandon the running game. Give Glenwood credit on defense as we had to throw the ball,” said Calvary Christian coach Brian Osborne.
Player quote: “I was just trying to do a good job running the ball and wanted to help my team win,” said Boatner after the game.
