“We just put ourselves behind the eight-ball. But after that I think our defense really kind of settled down. We got some stops and we made some plays. The defense played well but when you don’t move the ball, it’s going to be tough for your defense. We have to figure out something for the offense,” Logan coach Mike Johnson told WSAL in a postgame interview.
