The San Manuel football team started its season with a 42 – 12 loss to San Tan Foothills last Friday night in San Tan Valley.
“Too many missed tackles,” second-year San Manuel head coach Dan Williams told the Miner. “That’s what caused us to get down and we dug ourselves too deep of hole, by missing tackles.”
The Sabercats scored 35 unanswered points through three quarters before the Miners outscored them 12 – 7 in the final quarter.
Sophomore quarterback hit Benny Laguna for a five-yard touchdown pass and later Bridger Davis scored on a five-yard run.
According to Williams, it’s obvious what the Miners must do to improve before this Friday’s game.
“We have to tackle better,” he said. “We’ll work on that during practice.”
