Outmanned and out gunned, the West Gadsden Panthers fell to the to the larger East Gadsden High School in the Superintendent's Cup game Sept. 3 at Corry Field.
Despite the second loss of the season, WGHS coach, Antonio Bradwell said he saw some bright spots.
"They played hard. East Gadsden jumped out on us," he said when the Jaguars scored two touchdowns in the first quarter as they also held the Panthers to only a few yards on the ground.
The final score was 26-0.
Next week, West Gadsden faces Crestview another large school in the Panhandle.
They are a 4A school and a larger student population than East Gadsden, which has close to 1,000 students. West Gadsden has less than 300 students in their high school division.
"I want the people surrounding the kids know that it will be another couple of weeks before we start playing schools our size," Bradwell said.
Coach Corey Fuller said he was very pleased with the way his offense and defense performed the first half. The second half, he said, was not so good.
"Overall it was a good game. We're still making adjustments and we have to switch out a few players in other positions but it's coming together. They don't believe yet bu thtey will," he said.
The 1-0 Jaguars travel to face the Wakulla County War Eagles this friday night, Oct. 10.
