KIPP football makes too many mistakes in loss to Manchester-Essex
LYNN ― The KIPP football team made plays on both sides of the ball in spurts on Saturday afternoon, but in the end the Panthers simply made too many mistakes against a quality opponent and ended up falling to Manchester-Essex by a score of 15-8 at Manning Field.
"We just made too many mistakes and we were a step slow all night," said KIPP coach Jim Rabbitt. "Credit to Manchester-Essex, they played well and they capitalized on our mistakes. It's a bad feeling, but hopefully it's a reality check for us."
