To unpack how The Northridge Jaguars received a 35-18 win tonight against the Brookwood Panthers really comes down to the Panthers defensive game. Offensively they were able to make some good strides but went backwards defensively

In the first half, every big play made by Northridge, Brookwood had guys that had opportunities to make plays but failed to. Coach Mike Bramblett says this is something that they will have to continue to work on.

“Northridge is a really, really good football team,” said Bramblett, “At half time it should have been seven to six, but it wasn’t. They made plays we didn't. We did on offense, but we didn’t on defense. We need to do better tackling on defense.”

With that being said, the Panthers did have positive plays on offense to build on in practice this next week.

“I was really proud of how offensively we took care of the football, which is something we struggled with two or three weeks ago. We have to celebrate the little things that our guys are doing well and continue to develop those skills of ours," said Bramblett

The Jaguars on the other hand, came out and played hard and physical. Coach Mike Vickery said that even with running back LiEric Street out hurt, their offense was able to move the ball successfully.

“We’ve got some really good running backs,” said Vickery, “You hate to see a senior get hurt so that is an unfortunate thing for him but the other two running backs who played tonight stepped up and they were physical, so we are proud them and look for big things from them over the next few weeks”

Northridge has a big week ahead of them to prepare for the Gordo Green Wave and their high-powered quarterback next Friday.
