The Twin Cedars football team entered practice this week encouraged by their performance against Melcher-Dallas last week, but fully recognizing areas that needed improvement as well. Sabers’ head coach Aaron Allspach said the Saints’ really wore his team down late in the game with their ground attack, and says his squad is focusing on two key areas to prevent that from happening in the future.

“It’s just going to come down to a little conditioning and a little physical toughness. We just need to keep working on getting to the point of attack and not letting teams get three or four yards after we’ve wrapped them up,” said Allspach. “Once we’re there, we have to finish, and those are things we can work on in practice. Tackling is something we can always get better at.”

The Twin Cedars football team is 0-2 on the season and tries to capture their first win on Friday, when they travel to Wayne. The Falcons are an eight-player team for the first season, after competing in Class 1A a season ago.
