Coaches see small mistakes costing games

The Golden Eagles were victorious over Southwestern A.G. in double overtime on Thursday, finishing their game 5-4. On Sunday, the team played Texas Wesleyan and lost 1-0.

Head coach Scott Marksberry as well as assistant coach David Castagne believed the team did not play to their potential in either matches.

Upon being asked about Sunday’s match specifically, Marksberry shook his head, to which Castagne added, “We don’t want to talk about Sunday.”

“We played terribly,” Marksberry said.

The game was originally scheduled to be played on Saturday, but was pushed to Sunday due to severe weather.

The Golden Eagles controlled most of the match, including an 18-10 advantage in shots, stated a press release by Nicholas Robinson, director of sports information.

JBU had plenty of opportunities to score, but failed to do so.

“The small mistakes and silly mistakes are what decided the game,” Castagne said. “Small mistakes cost us the game.”

“Our biggest weakness is detail oriented,” Marksberry said.

Both Marksberry and Castagne said they would continue to focus on fixing the small details to avoid the “silly mistakes” in their final SAC games.
