ELKHART â€“ You wouldnâ€™t know it from the score, but Glenn played a good defensive football game Friday during its 36-0 loss to Jimtown.
The Falcon offense, on the other hand â€¦
â€śWe just have to find people who will run hard and make plays,â€ť said Falcon coach Justin Bogunia following the lopsided Northern State Conference battle at Elkhart.
The Jimmies (2-0) proved their No. 2 ranking in the 3A state coaches poll is no fluke. They scored 14 points in the first two minutes and basically ran roughshod over the 0-2 Glenn team.
