Hastings College football looking for a quicker start in Oklahoma

By  | 

HASTINGS, Neb.-- The Hastings College football team is looking to go 2-0 this weekend, but will need to start out faster.

The Broncos were able to overcome a 21-point deficit at half to beat Peru State on Saturday.

After going scoreless for two quarters, the Bronco offense put up 25 points to finish the game.

Head Coach Tony Harper doesn't think it'll be too hard to get that second half performance for an entire game.

"It's pretty black and white for the guys. We can put it up there on film and be like,'This was the first two quarters. This was the last two quarters. Now, which one are we? We got to make a choice.' The good thing is. A year ago, we wouldn't have done what we did. We lost some close games last year. Now, we should have the confidence that within reason that we should be able to handle our business, but we can't afford to start off as slow as we did last week this week," said Harper.

The Broncos will travel to Oklahoma to play Panhandle State University Saturday. Kick-off is set for 6 p.m.
