Steers lose steam in second half; lose big to Jal

........................................................................................................................................................................................

The Magdalena Steers went into their game against Jal with a 4-1 record. The Steers were holding their own against the 3-3 Panthers, until halftime. The score was 19 – 13 Jal Panthers starting the third quarter. The Steers seemed to lose steam on defense and offense, scoring no more points and increasing their turnovers, as the Panthers play was rough and a little dirty. The Steers had multiple attempts at touchdowns, but all were cut short by the Panther’s defense and the ball was intercepted for a Jal touchdown once.
