LAPEL, Ind. —
Miller said the Bulldogs left plays on the field that cost them the game.
“We made some great plays, and there were some plays we didn’t make -- that’s the way it bounces sometimes,” he said. “We never got back in our rhythm, that’s how I’d describe it. We put ourselves in too many second-and-long situations where now you’re trying to get back bigger chunks of yardage. Just got to make a few more plays here and there.”
Miller said despite the three-game skid Lapel is currently on, it needs to keep after each practice and game so it is prepared when the postseason rolls around.
“This is not fun,” Miller told his team after the heartbreaking loss. “I mean, yes, we should’ve won that game. We had a chance to win that game, and we’ve got to find a way come sectionals to win those games.”
Lutheran running back Dalton Nidey led all rushers with 128 yards on 21 carries, while Cody Moncel had 89 on 14 totes. Reid had 9 yards rushing, but two of his eight carries went for scores.
The Bulldogs were led by the arm of Cherry on 21-of-39 passing for 250 yards and two scores to go along with three interceptions. Bailey Partington led the receiving corps with 97 yards on seven catches, and Hart had 66 yards on six grabs and both scores.
