The O’Fallon Varsity Football team watched their postseason hopes come to an end on Friday night against the Alton Redbirds.
For O’Fallon, it was a start that no coach or player wants to experience. O’Fallon found themselves trailing 21-0 at the end of the first quarter.
After some miscues on special teams, and a snap that went over the head of Punter Brooks Hackney, the Redbirds set themselves up on the goal line of O’Fallon for their first two scores of the game.
“We really struggled with some execution from our special teams and that hurt us with field position throughout the first half. We have to do a better job on special teams and in the field position part of the game,” said Head Coach Brandon Joggerst.
