Heading into Friday’s homecoming game against visiting Pelion, North Central head coach Louis Clyburn said his Knights worked on cleaning up several areas which proved costly to his team in the previous week’s loss to Keenan.Many of those issues were taken care of, but one which Clyburn and company have no control over came back to bite the Knights in a 22-8 loss to the Panthers in a game which was knotted at 8-8 with less than 10 minutes left to play in the contest.NC is learning a hard lesson in the old adage of not being able to coach speed.“Every team in our region has more speed and more athletes than we do,” Clyburn said after his team fell to 0-2 in Region 3-AA play. “We have to figure out ways to score points when we play a team which is faster than us. And, that’s going to be the case for the next three weeks.
