Bears Look to Bounce Back from Tough Loss to DGS

Posted: Updated:

Despite not getting the result they were hoping for on Saturday in Denton, the Box Elder Bears say they'll be more than ready for their first playoff game in more than 20 years this weekend in Box Elder.

The Bears gave DGS all they could handle before a late fumble which led to the Bearcats (9-0, 8-0) go ahead score resulted in a 35-34 defeat. The loss prevented Box Elder (8-1,7-1) from winning the Northern C 6-Man title and getting a top seed in the playoffs.

However, as the league's second seed, the Bears will still get to play on home this Saturday, hosting Jordan out of the East. Players and coaches say the loss to DGS will only motivate them moving forward.

"We just go back to work," Box Elder head coach Neal Rosette Jr. says. "We go back to our routine. That's the only way we can do it. We tell our guys that we still have a long road ahead of us. We're still hungry, I know we didn't lose the hunger. We'll get over this and then move on."

"We're going to train two times harder than we did last week. We're going to do every drill harder, do every play harder and try our best," Senior wide receiver Shane Ketchum adds.

Box Elder and Jordan play on Saturday, 10/31 at 1pm. The winner faces either Custer/Hysham or West Yellowstone the following week.
