LaPorte played a game tonight that reminded me of the one they played in Crown Point two years ago. We stayed within a touchdown the entire game, but could not get the big play that we needed to climb over the top. The team has been in some tight games, but just could not get the spark to take them over the top as we did last year. We are now 2-5 with two home games coming up against Michigan City and Portage to close the season. We would need to win both of those, and two sectional games just to be a .500 team. This team is young and missing a lot of key elements from last years team. If we can gel quickly we could make some noise in the sectional. We will see in a week when the pairings are announced.
