After losing 49-25 against Robbinsdale Cooper, junior Micheal Boxley-Harmon said he looks forward to working hard during practice to gain team spirit.

“I’m feeling a little hurt and a little sad but it’s alright. We will bounce back in practice so we can come back stronger than before,” Boxley-Harmon said.

According to coach Ben Wolfe, the team has some improvements to make before the next game.

“We did some things well (and) we did a lot of things not well. We will clean it up and get better and move onto next week,” Wolfe said. 

Junior Daniel Goldenberg said he believes the team was too arrogant in the beginning, which affected their playing during the second half.

“We had a chance at winning at first but we just lost our fight the second half because we got too confident,” Goldenberg said. 

Boxley-Harmon said he is hopeful the hard work throughout the next week will help the team succeed in the upcoming Homecoming game. 

“We as a team will dominate in practice so that we can dominate at Homecoming,” Boxley-Harmon said. 

According to Wolfe, the team will focus on using certain strategies to have a positive end to their season. 

“We will try to capitalize on their weaknesses and use it to our advantage so we can make it to the state round,” Wolfe said.

The next Park football game will be the Homecoming game against Spring Lake Park 7 p.m. Sept. 20 at the Oriole Stadium.
