PERKINS —For McLoud coach Rusty Hall, Friday, Sept. 14 won’t be associated with happy memories.
McLoud concluded the non-district portion of its schedule by absorbing a 47-7 loss from Perkins-Tryon.
The Redskins threw four interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns in the first half.
“We also dropped two touchdowns passes — one in the first quarter and one in the second quarter — in which we were behind everybody by 10 yards on post routes,” Hall said. “The second one would have tied the game.
“We were undisciplined on our front-line blocking and on three of our pass plays we didn’t even see the ball or run the right route. Both of those things were bad —busting on the front line and our receivers route-running.”
McLoud, 1-2, averted a shutout with 1:30 remaining in the game when Tyler Jones took a 9-yard pass from Koalton Keller. Roberto Valadez added the extra-point kick.
“Defensively, we just didn’t stop the run at all. It was very frustrating,” Hall said.
Perkins went to 3-0.
McLoud will launch district play Friday night by entertaining rival Harrah.
