Head Coach Dave Halvorson:  “First games are often full of mistakes and this was one of them. The boys played really hard and even with the turnovers we had many chances to win the game. Cherry was a real physical team with some very good individual players that caused us some problems. The good thing is that we have lots of room to improve if we are to be competitive with the rest of our season being a tough schedule. Cromwell always seems to find a way to win like they did last Friday so they will come to Ogilvie ready to play. If we clean up our mistakes and learn from our last game, we can be a very competitive team the rest of the season.

Up next:  Ogilvie hosts Cromwell-Wright at 7:00 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10, 2021, in their home opener. Cromwell-Wright won their opener 13-12 over North Central.
