JCC FB Struggled Against Wilber Friday

JCC FB Struggled Against Wilber Friday

Friday was a cool, rainy evening in Tecumseh and not much went right for the Thunderbirds as they met up with the Wilber-Clatonia Wolverines. In their long history of matchups, JCC had never beaten Wilber-Clatonia, and the Wolverines were going to make sure that it didn’t happen last Friday night as well. Wilber-Clatonia won this contest 49-6.

Coach Meints had this to say about the game. “We knew that we would be in for a battle, and Wilber showed once again why they are a team to contend with in C2. There is just not a lot of words that one can say after a game like that other than we just need to play better. We need to be more physical, we need to play to the whistle, catch kicks on the run, pass better, catch the ball, and the list goes on. Where we go now is we forget about this game and focus on the remaining three.”
