Hardrocker Football

Saturday the Hardrockers (1-6, 0-3) fell to the Clan (2-5, 2-0) at Simon Fraser after having a 31-26 lead at the half.
The Clan scored 27 points in the second half to dust the 'Rockers 53-31. Amassing over 600 yards of total offense for the game compared to Mines' 351 yards.
It is truly unfortunate to see Mines struggle in football this year. Last year (relatively speaking) went quite well for Hardrocker football and it's a let down to have this year not perpetuate the results of last year.
The season is now about half over with, but fortunately there are still three more home games for you all to come out and watch. The most upcoming one being this Saturday where the 'Rockers will face Azusa State at 1:00 p.m.
Based on the season so far, the emphasis needs to be on defense and finishing games. The offense seems to be functioning just fine averaging 29 points per game, but the defense is averaging over 48 points per game which would only be good if it was basketball and not football.
