Caleb Williams, the Jersey head football coach said his Panthers had a really good night and it was probably their best game of the season against rival Civic Memorial.

“We lined up and we were able to execute very well tonight we clicked and put it all together,” he said. “Tonight, when they made mistakes we were able to capitalize.

"Our program hasn’t won an MVC game in a while, so this was a great win. There were no surprises tonight. We had a good night we get to go back and enjoy this then come back to play in our last game against Columbia.”

The Panthers are now 3-5, while the Eagles go to 1-7.
