St. Albert football struggled to hold on to the ball in a 38-0 loss at Earlham on Friday.
“We need to execute at a higher level,” St. Albert head coach Jake Driver said. “We need to hold on to the football better. We had five turnovers, we had a blocked punt, one snap go over our quarterbacks head, one pick and a fumble on an option. It’s the same things that rear their head. We made too many mental mistakes.Next week we have to align up against a very good opponent and execute at a higher level.”
Earlham got on the board first with a 64-yard drive that ended in a 5-yard touchdown run from Broad Morrison. Morrison scored a 1-yard touchdown later to give his team a 14-0 lead.
The Cardinals capitalized on a fumble when Ryan Stiles scored on a 2-yard touchdown. Earlham then took a 26-0 lead when a blocked punt bounced back into the endzone and BLaine Tiedmann recovered it for a score.
