Turnovers proved to be problematic in another district opener for the Panorama Panthers football team (2-1; 0-1 Class 1A District 6) last Friday. The Panthers lost three fumbles in a 21-7 week three setback against the Madrid Tigers (1-2; 1-0 Class 1A District 6). Last year, Panorama committed five turnovers against Madrid, resulting in a 35-6 setback. Despite the loss, Panorama head football coach Lyle Alumbaugh remembers advice his former football coach taught him long ago.
“When you win, you probably didn’t play as well as you thought you did and when you lost you didn’t play as poorly as you thought you did.” Alumbaugh said, “After some film study it looks like that’s where we are. We have things we want to improve on, but we will probably be talking about that in November(too).”
Alumbaugh adds this week’s focus in practice will be on the fundamentals and executing them better. It’s homecoming week for the Panorama football team as the Panthers welcome Ogden (1-2; 0-1 Class 1A District 6) to town this Friday for a Class 1A District 6 matchup.
