Concord vs. Bridgeman

The Concord Yellow jackets play their first game of the year.
Riley Adams

On Friday, our Concord Yellowjackets played their first game of the season against Bridgeman. The Jackets fought a tough battle and “worked their butts off all night,” explains head coach Mr. Clark. Despite their efforts, the Jackets fell short to Bridgeman with the final score of 12-28.

Clark shares his thoughts on the game: “I thought we played pretty good defense, and our effort was awesome. I think that the thing that shined out most was definitely our defense,” he explains. The boys tried their hardest all night to stop Bridgeman. 

This year, Concord has a great roster lined up for the season, Coach Clark continues, “It’s really hard to name just one. I mean Mekhi [is] obvious but TJ, Jordan, Collin, Tylend, Levi, Gavin; there’s so many weapons this year. I think on defense Mason Davis is an important one to think about, along with Alex Winters.”

Although the team worked hard, Clark explains that there is always something to improve on. He continues to emphasize that they need to work on “self discipline and emotional control.” He shares that “our penalties were outrageous the first game, and we did a lot of silly things that we could’ve controlled.”

That was only the first game of the season, and it was a tough opponent. Clark shares who he thinks their toughest opponent will be this year: “Hopefully it was Bridgeman, but after that it’s Gobles, but we have a really tough schedule this year,” he explains. 

Wish the boys good luck at their away game this Friday vs. Toledo Christian.
