Traditionally a homecoming game results in a victory for the home team, but that tradition failed to pan out this year. Despite immense efforts from both sides, the patriots walked out with a loss.

After the turmoil faced by the football team this season, their last game on Nov. 3 signified the end of the intense clash between them and their tumultuous season. This game marked the end of the fall football season, and sealed the deal on the team’s consistent losses, with a final defeat from Winter Park, 24-47.

 The last pep rally of the year set the tone for the upcoming game, raising immense spirit throughout the student body, as well as shining the spotlight on the football team in hopes of excellence for the night’s game. Their performance was not a show everyone was expecting. The Patriots were down during each quarter and received almost half the points the Wildcats earned. The track record of the season set the standards for how well the team would execute their strategies for the homecoming game.

“It’s been a really rough season for us,” sophomore Luis Latozefsky said. “We really needed to work on tactics to take out our opponents and we failed to do that.”

Some students were of the belief that the team’s poor season had to do with changes in the lineup as well as differences in execution.

“We had so many amazing players last year,” sophomore Mila King said. “They had a lot of discipline and their skill level was really good. I hope they step up their game next year.” 

Despite the game’s results, the school spirit throughout the season never failed to thrive. Students arrived at the game in apparel for a “white lies” theme, which meant white t-shirts with various statements scrawled on them stating a lie that applied to the person wearing it. Fans and players alike hope the next football season will have a tremendous comeback and fortify a new reputation for the Patriots.

“I have a strong feeling we will do better next season,” senior Mitchel Woodrow said.
