“We were playing really good,” freshman Clayton Smith said. “We just needed to pump the energy up.”

After the end of the half, the railers trailed behind 22-28. The third quarter remained scoreless.

“I was feeling that we could have chance [to win] but i knew we couldn’t just ease through it,we’d have to put a lot of effort into it” sophomore Jadyn Medina said.

An interception from freshman Luke Hirsh in the third quarter helped the team to bring the score to 30-26.

“I felt pretty good,” Hirsh said. “I wasn’t really expecting it. I kinda lost it in the light for a little bit so i was kinda freaking out that i was going to miss it, but it felt really good”

A late score from Salina south brought the score to 30-42, which turned into the final score.

“All of our loses that’s like a chip on our shoulders that we could take into next year we can learn from our mistakes,” Smith said.
