BRIDGEPORT – What had been an exciting start to the 2023 season for the Farmersville Farmers (3-1, 0-1) hit a snag on Friday night in their District 5-4A opener. Miscues, penalties, and turnovers proved to be the difference in their 26-21 loss to Bridgeport (1-5, 1-1), their first loss of the season. 

“It’s what we haven’t done all year long,” head coach Zach Quinlan said of the mistakes. “And that’s the difference between winning and losing. So, you take away the turnovers, and the penalties that in my opinion, and I don’t usually call out the [officials], but it was not very even as far as the number of penalties… Ultimately, we have to be able to beat teams even when the officials are bad. With the turnovers, it makes it really hard to do that.”

Bridgeport got the scoring started on their opening drive with a 1-yard touchdown run by running back Cole Pritchard, though Farmersville would respond right back on the next series with a 1-yard score of their own on a keeper by quarterback Brady Gray.
