GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. After last year's playoff run, the Panthers headed into the season with their eyes set on the postseason. With their focus shifted elsewhere, Durango some timely errors saw the Panthers drop their first game of the year 21-20.
After two weeks off, the team has had time to let the loss marinate and they are using that slip up as a motive moving forward.
" We played a good team early, they exposed some weaknesses. We found out what those are, and we are looking to build off of them, turn them into strengths and get ready for this week. We have had two weeks to suck on that lemon and it wasn't very tasty, but we worked hard and are looking forward to this week"
- Ben Johnson, Head Coach
" We have to work on sharpening up the little things because little things are what win close games like that"
- Tristan Brown RB/LB
