continued Tuesday, he declared he’d had enough of the lack of ball protection.
“Six fumbles in a row cost us the game,” he said.”Our stats looked great, but those turnovers killed us.”
Leonbruno said he wasn’t discouraged about the team’s prospects, as he was going to conduct drills this week to cure the fumble issue.
“WIth all the mistakes we made, we were still in the game,” he said. “We know we’ve got a good team.”
Up next for the Burghers is a matchup Friday night against Rensselaer, another perennially tough team, on their home field.
Leonbruno said he was anticipating a new approach of steely resolve from his players.
“Were treating this coming game like we’re approaching Week One,” he said. “If we can win this game, we can erase what happened and get our season rolling.”
