    CUMBY — The Cumby Trojans fell to 0-2 on the football season, losing 37-7 here Friday night in non-district action.
    Cumby fell behind 14-0 at the half, but came back to make the game closer than the score indicates.

    The lone touchdown for the Trojans was a 17-yard scoring pass from quarterback Travis Taylor to Noah Dyer.
    “We stayed close and made it a good game. Then we gave up some scores to Celeste,” said Tom Dracos, Cumby head football coach.
    Dracos said he was surprised with how nervous his team was in their home opener.
    “We were really nervous, the kids were trying so hard to be perfect and make plays,” Dracos said. “That lead to mistakes, because you can play football when you are nervous and so concerned about what you are doing. You  have to trust the guy next to you to do his job.”
    Dracos said, “We showed improvement. We are just adjusting to our new system. We probably threw the ball more in this game that they did all of last year. It is a lot to learn. It’s kind of frustrating to watch, because when we put the play together and execute we are pretty good.”
    Cumby, 0-2, will host rival Wolfe City at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 13.
    “The Wolfe City game is big for us,” Dracos added. “They have a good club, they are 2-0 and will be a big challenge.”
