    “We just had individual breakdowns at key times that hurt us,” head coach Hunter Cantwell said. “I thought we played a good game against a very good football team, came out and did a lot of things well, but a lot of little things bit us in the rear and when you play a tough opponent like Owen, those things add up.”
