They said it

“We had a lot of bad penalties. Some were on us and some were on somebody else. Interesting calls, but it is what it is.” - Aynor coach Jody Jenerette

“We battled. I thought we played really well. We went 80 yards in the last minute of the game, had four opportunities from the 3 and couldn’t punch it in, ran out of timeouts – actually ran out of time on the clock for some reason, I still don’t know how that happened – but, you know, we just lost the game.” - Jenerette

“These kids battle tough. They’re tough dudes, man. It’s just a gut punch. It’s an outcome that we thought we had a great opportunity to win. Long trip. You know, they had a big night here on that turf, their first game on turf and they played well. You know, we’ve got to rally and try to beat Green Sea [Floyds] next week.” - Jenerette
