Livingstone football looks to bounce back this week

SALISBURY, North Carolina -- To a man, players and coaches, no one expected to come out of the season opener last Saturday with a loss.

But that’s what happened to Livingstone in Columbia, S.C., when the Blue Bears fell to Benedict, 5-3, in the Palmetto Capital City Classic.

Last season, Livingstone pounded Benedict, 49-6, in the opener, kick-starting its first winning season in 17 years.

“It’s such a different feeling in the office because we’re used to winning our first three or four games,” Livingstone head coach Daryl Williams said on Tuesday. “We didn’t win our first game and it was a culture shock … it has a way of grounding you. I have to keep reminding myself that we have young football team, but that’s still not an excuse for us making the mistakes we made last Saturday.”
