Conqs battle Scotties but Come Up Short

Sep 11, 2012
In the first half of the game the Conqs looked good.  Scoring a field goal 6 minutes into the 1st quarter.  Then scoring again on a 24 yard pass from Jason Stewart to Brian Reed in the 2nd quarter.  Going into the half with a 10-7 lead over Highland.  With both teams coming into battle at 0-2, it looked like it was going to come down to who wanted it more and who would have the ball last.  

Unfortunately, that was not the case.  Turnovers plagued the Conqs in the second half, and the scotties capitalized on them.  Returning two touchdowns off of interceptions late in the 3rd and 4th quarters.  The Conqs remain winless on the season, but look to be gelling more and more each game.  With a tough battle ahead facing Hutchinson this weekend.  The conqs could easily turn their season around with a big win over a highly touted Hutchinson team.
