We weren&#39;t able to finish and we let it get away from us, but tonight they were really focused for four quarters of football.&nbsp; They really finished. I&#39;m proud of the way they executed at the end.&quot;</p> <p>Next up for O-A, Elba/Byron-Bergen, who takes a 2-0 record into today&#39;s match up with Notre Dame (0-2).</p> <p>Pembroke will host Notre Dame next week.</p> <p><em>Top photo: Alan Chatt picks a&nbsp;Mitch Lewter&nbsp;pass in the first quarter.
