“It was a very ugly game as far as the weather conditions,” Wilkinson County assistant coach Steve Davis said. “It played somewhat of a factor, but we just came out flat. They beat us up front.

“Offensively, we just shot ourselves in the foot with fumbles, interceptions and missed blocking assignments. We just didn’t show up to play. I have to take some responsibility as coach of the offense.”
