The Badgers turned over the ball five times, but showed improvement in the second half, outscoring the other team 8-0.
“The first half was bad,” Freshman Defensive Tackle Robert Morin said. “We played a better second half on offense.”
Sophomore Mauricio Blanco rushed for the most yards, while Freshman Kolton Witte threw well, Coach Sean Armstrong said.
Sophomores Mac Pogue and Tre Beaver chipped in strong running performances, with Beaver scoring the only touchdown and Pogue adding the two-point conversion. The Badgers also got help from sideline from Sophomore Steven Gamboa and Freshmen Wes Lover, Morin and Chris Brambila.
“It was a learning experience. We can learn how to play on the road,” Armstrong said. “We look to grow and get better.”
The game was a physical one with Sophomore Tight End Cody Martinez suffering a minor concussion.
“We need improvement and need to be ready to play,” Blanco said. “ We need to encourage each other.”
