“We got a little comfortable with where we were,” said Davy. “I just want to talk to the guys and say, ‘Don’t be satisfied with this.' This is just one game of the 13-game schedule that we play. We have to come out every game and play with this type of intensity.”

Spolyar said he will remind his young group of players that this is only one game and to learn from their mistakes.

“It’s one game,” he said of his postgame speech. “We’re such a young team. We graduated 11 varsity players last year — a lot of new guys. We knew we were going to build game-by-game. Pendleton’s an established team. The team that we beat last year, they’re there still.”

Spolyar said the blowout loss is motivation for his team to get better as the season moves on.

“It motivates them,” he said. “It’s a motivation. Nobody likes to lose. They don’t like to lose. They want to win the games. The score at the end is what motivates Coach (Jordan) Hobbs and myself to keep their heads up, to keep putting little goals in front of them that they can obtain to build that confidence to continue to play.”

Spolyar said the one big thing his team needs to do to move forward is to trust each other, and he said that is something that is coming with time.
