The Redhawk football team saw its five game winning streak come to an end Friday as they fell 43-7 to the undefeated Frisco Racoons in a District 7-5A contest at the Ford Center.

“Coming out we just weren’t there mentally,” junior, quarterback Keldric Luster said. “Our energy was pretty low and we didn’t see that spark that gets us fired up when we start a game.”

Averaging 49 points coming into Friday’s game, the team fell far short of its usual offensive fireworks. 

“The game plan is always just to be better than we were last week,” head coach Matt Swinnea siad. “We’re a strong team playing strong teams and the way we practice is going to be the way we play.”

For the Raccoons, the game was won at the line of scrimmage.

“It all starts with the guys up front,” Frisco head coach Jeff Harbert said to the Dallas Morning News. “When they’re mashing people, and we are running the ball like that and hitting a few passes, we make it difficult to defend us. We were really executing.”
