Over the weekend, the Plains Horsemen took a decisive loss to the Darby Tigers with the scoreboard finishing 54-6.
The loss came after the Horsemen defeated Seeley-Swan 36-6 on Friday, Oct. 31.
According to Plains head coach Eddie Fultz, the Horsemen suffered a couple of injuries during the Darby game, and he does not know the extent of the injuries.
Fultz said that his team is not sitting where he would like to see them and after the loss to Darby, if they don’t pick up their play on the field they could have little hope of coming out on top the remainder of the season.
“I’m still going through the videos from the weekend, but it wasn’t a good game,” Fultz said. “We didn’t play well at all ... Hopefully, I can find where we went wrong and we can fix it before it’s too late ... We really need to push forward.”
He further added that although teams in the league are generally different with their strengths, the loss they took was one that really hurt.
Quarterback Treydon Brouillette was 7-for-19 passing for 185 yards and a touchdown.
Nose tackle Rusty Stuart had a busy evening with 15 tackles and a shared quarterback sack. Tucker Foster added seven tackles and a shared sack. Esvin Reyes also had seven tackles.
Fultz said there is a lot of work to do over the coming week with a few key games coming up against some tough teams. The Horsemen host a tough Arlee team this Friday at 7 p.m.
“Practices are going to be amped up along with intensity and efforts these coming weeks,” he said.
