Defensively, the Red Raiders were able to capture two interceptions on the night.

“We saw some positive stuff from our offense tonight. Offense is where we really struggled last week and even the week before, said Bellefonte coach Anthony Confer. “Any positive thing we can get from our offense is certainly something we can build on. We had more opportunities tonight. We just shot ourselves in the foot. A lot of undisciplined penalties that got us in bad positions. I can’t question the kids efforts or their physicality. Coming out here against a very good football team.
