NEWBERRY — The Newberry High School Bulldogs fell 31-21 to the Broome Centurions in a game that was played Thursday night due to the threat of Hurricane Matthew. The Bulldogs are now 4-3 on the season.
“We didn’t do very good last week. We turned the ball over too many times on offense,” Newberry Head Coach Phil Strickland said.
Going into practice this week, Strickland plans to work on better tackling on defense.
“We have to work on better tackling and securing the ball on offense,” he said. “We’re getting the ball. We just have to hold onto it.”
This Friday, the Bulldogs will face Clinton High School in a 7:30 p.m. kickoff. Clinton is coming into this week after a 45-7 win over the Mid-Carolina Rebels, making their overall season record 3-4 and conference record 1-1.
“We need to be more alert this week,” Strickland said. “We need to do a better job at stopping and recognize what Clinton does on defense because they mix it up a whole lot and not give up big plays.”
