Denison Football Blog Week 7 Game 8
 
Sherman 49 Denison 24                           DHS 1-7, 0-4
 
 
In the Battle of the Axe, what was the key to your loss this year?
 
WHITE: We turned the ball over five times; four in the first half. It put us behind the eight ball right away. We moved the ball well, but with the turnovers, we were in trouble in a hurry.
 
What was your feeling at halftime given the turnovers and the score?
 
WHITE: It was only 21-3 at the half. I thought we could crawl back in it at that point. We couldn’t have anymore turnovers and we needed to play as well as we have all season to do it.
 
What happened early in the second half that stalled that idea of a comeback?
 
WHITE: We couldn’t get a stop on defense when we needed it. If we could have and then scored, we would have only been down by 11 points early in the third quarter. But we didn’t stop them.
 
What was a bright spot in the loss for the Yellow Jackets?
 
WHITE: Our offensive line played very well; and Roy Patti at receiver was good. On defense, Hayden Chapman and Connor Counce played well; and so did R.J. Polk.
 
Who is up next for Denison and how do you match up with them?
 
WHITE: We play Greenville here on Friday. They are winless this season, but they are playing better in the second half of the season. If we aren’t on our game, we will struggle against them.
 
With two games left in district and the season, how do your playoff chances look?
 
WHITE: We are not out of it yet; but we need help. When Mt. Pleasant plays Royse City on Friday, we will know if we still have a chance. If Royse City wins, we are out even if we win our last two games. If Mt. Pleasant wins, we have a chance as long as we win our last two games.
 
Are you going to change anything or your outlook on these last two games given your record?
 
WHITE: No, we still have a chance at the playoffs. We are going to stay the course and see what happens. We have to play better overall, but I have seen improvement in areas since the beginning of the season. It’s not over ‘til the end.
