MAYSVILLE — The Corn Bible Crusaders football team lost to Maysville 60-24 Friday night at Maysville in the opening round of the playoffs.
“We played well, but obviously could have played better,” offensive coordinator Brendon Schmidt said. “It went back-and-forth at first, but we gave up too many plays. It only takes two to three big plays. However, I am super proud of these guys and what they did this season.”
Maysville scored a touchdown early, but senior Brendan Miller ran the kickoff back for a touchdown to tie the game, 8-8. Maysville scored four touchdowns unanswered and halftime score was 38-8.
“We went into a hurry-up offense in the third quarter,” Schimdt said. “We told our guys to keep fighting. The seniors stepped up and refused to go down without a fight. We could have rolled over and died, but we kept fighting almost the entire second half.”
Miller stepped up and threw two touchdown passes and scored a rushing touchdown. However, Maysville hold off a comeback, winning the game 60-24.
“Everyone made a great impact on the game and this season,” Schmidt said. “Wins and losses do not tell the heart of our team. We worked really hard and I am so proud of this group of guys.”
Corn Bible finishes the season with a record of 1-9. Schmidt said their guys were challenged this season and their record does not indicate the type of season they had this year.
“We did a lot of traveling this season,” Schmidt said. “This district is full of fundamentally-sound teams and I was proud of the way we competed this season. There were a lot of long road trips and our record does not indicate the type of season we had. We had so much heart and worked really hard.”
