Pinson head coach Matt Glover told his troops the well-worn aphorism that “there are no moral victories.” Having said that, some losses are less distasteful than others, especially considering the second-half effort against the second-ranked team in the state’s biggest classification.
“We started out playing about as bad as we could play, but they didn’t give up. I always tell them to keep on fighting, and they did,” Glover said. “I’m pleased with their effort and attitude.”
Clay-Chalkville (5-0) returns to regional play by hosting Grissom next week. The Indians face another stiff test next week, as they make the short trip to regional rival Center Point — right on the heels of the Eagles upsetting McAdory, the top-ranked team in Class 5A, by a 22-14 score in overtime. That game is The North Jefferson News Big Game for next week.
