GARLAND — A test of character.
That’s exactly what Sachse’s football team faces this Friday, when it takes the field at Williams Stadium for the Homecoming game against North Garland.
Specifically, the Mustangs’ ability to bounce back from defeat will be tested, because a loss, a heartbreaking one at that, is what they suffered Sept. 24, falling 38-34 to Garland at Williams Stadium.
The loss, the first this season for the Mustangs (4-1 overall and 1-1 in District 11-6A), was particularly painful, because the drubbing was the sum of many mistakes, including a blocked punt, a missed field goal, a missed extra point and multiple turnovers, including a fumble right at the Garland goal line late in the game when Sachse was threatening to take the lead.
The Owls improved to 4-1 and 2-0 with the victory.
“You can’t have five turnovers, (including) down on the goal line,” head coach Mark Behrens said. “We have a lot of stuff to fix.”
