LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Livingston High School football team is looking to capitalize on opportunities later this season following a 26-2 home-turf defeat to East Orange on Saturday.
The loss brings the Lancers to a 1-3 overall record on the season, with a victory over Millburn and losses to East Orange, Montclair and Randolph.
“Execution—Sometimes a game comes down to one word,” said Livingston head coach Robert Breschard. “We needed to execute when the opportunities presented themselves.”
East Orange found opportunities to get on the board in the second, third and fourth quarters.
A strong defensive play by the Lancers just before the half resulted in a safety and two points for Livingston.
“We have a bye week, so we are going back to the basics,” said Breschard, who spoke of an injury sustained by junior Joe Cullen during the second half. “We need to get back to the basics and at the same time be smart because we want to get some kids healthy.”
Following their bye week, the Lancers will take on Columbia in Maplewood on Oct. 6 at 7 p.m.
