    No excuses. Page was the better team on Saturday. Penalty yards were equal. With that said, I am a Trojan!

    As a fan of the game it was the worst! Bad calls and no respect for Garner from the officials! Just drove me nuts hearing Garner called the white team over and over again while Page was called the Page PIRATES over and over. People from A.L.BROWN behind us said it was the worst title game they had ever seen because of the calls against Garner that was uncalled for. He said at halftime Garner could not win this game being treated like this no matter what they did! Page was allowed to play while Garner was tied down bt the officials! The game film tells it all!

    I was really hoping Garner would win, especially after they beat my Leesville Pride. Garner is a great team, and they will be great again next season. Congrats on a terrific season.
