Two days later, the emotion was still evident in David Wagner’s voice.
His Winder-Barrow High School football team was so close to victory, yet in the end, that elusive first win was denied, grabbed away like a bully stealing your lunch money.
“It was a tough evening,” said Wagner, whose team led 21-0 at one point in the contest. “It wasn’t any easier going back and watching it the second time around. We started on a high note, but couldn’t finish it. I will say we never had a letdown in effort the entire time.”
