FAIRLAND — For everything that went right for Fairland the previous three weeks, they didn’t Friday, Sept. 29, against Foyil.
The Panthers coasted to a 21-8 District A-7 victory, snapping Fairland’s win streak at three.
The Owls (3-3) lost five fumbles in the game.
“Just anything and everything that you can imagine,” Fairland head coach Kent Marshall. “In the past, when those things would occurred to us early, we found a way to fight back.”
Fairland, trailing 6-0 late in the first half, had a pass intercepted that was returned to the Owls’ 4-yard line.
Foyil scored as time expired to take a two-touchdowns lead into the break, Marshall said.
The Owls finally scored in the third quarter, but Foyil countered to create what would be the final margin.
“They never really had anything on us, but they would 3-yard us here and 4-yard us there,” Marshall said.
Fairland travels to unbeaten and No. 1-ranked Afton Friday, Oct. 6.
