Stow coach Marty Tinkler says it simply.
"We just a need break; a big break," Tinkler said. "The kids are doing everything they can to get better; they are practicing and preparing as hard as they can."
The Bulldogs are facing the probability of not having starting quarterback Duane Mitchell and tailback Jon Markulis again Friday night against Lakewood. Both missed last week's 14-7 Homecoming loss against Hudson with injuries.
"It was 0-0 at halftime, then 14-0 going into the fourth quarter. We scored with three minutes left and we had a chance if we get the onside kick. We didn't, but at least we were in position to have the shot," Tinkler said.
