There were botched snaps. There was an untimely fumble that led to a touchdown and an overtime that maybe shouldn't have occurred. There was a safety in the first half that was careless at best. In other words, Juan Diego played a spotty game Friday night.
But there also was resilience. There was execution when the Soaring Eagle absolutely had to have it. There were three touchdown runs by Cole Nelson and clutch stops by a defense worn out at the hands of Skyline's no-huddle offense.
A 24-17 double-overtime win over the Eagles wasn't perfect. Juan Diego coach John Colosimo won't take the film Monday and attach it to his how-to-play-football manual. But the Soaring Eagle came out and won a game they easily could've blown.
