FARMINGTON -- A 42-point swing occurred late in the third period continuing into the fourth with the Cardinals losing fumbles twice and then throwing an interception.
Greenbrier (4-2, 2-1 5A West) also blocked a punt to hand Farmington (3-3, 1-2 5A West) a disappointing 28-14 loss on Homecoming Day. Three consecutive Farmington possessions ended with a turnover in Greenbrier territory. Each time Greenbrier scored going the other way to put up 21 unanswered points, building a 28-7 fourth quarter lead off Cardinal miscues.
"We turned the ball over four times last Friday and you can't expect to beat anyone, much less a good team like Greenbrier, when you do that," said Farmington coach Mike Adams. "Three of those turnovers came inside their 30-yard-line -- if we finished those drives it would have been a completely different game."
