Falcons looking to finish

Saint Stephen's last football game left coach Stan Brown pleased with the result.
That doesn't mean he was entirely happy.
Saint Stephen's won its first Class 1B-District 6 game Oct. 9 at Moore Haven, where the Falcons scored a 23-20 victory.
All of those points, however, came in the first half.
"That drove me nuts," Brown said. "We watched the film, and it wasn't like we couldn't drive the ball. We'd get inside Moore Haven's 20 and 30..."
...and nothing. So Brown is hoping the Falcons (3-3, 1-1) can do a better job Friday when they continue district play at Fort Myers Evangelical Christian.
"The focus of the past two weeks has been to finish," said Brown, whose team had a bye last week. "That's been our motto."
Brown entered the Moore Haven game planning to use Michael Roberts and Adam Vining at quarterback. But Brown decided to stick with Vining, who led the Falcons to points on their first four possessions.
"I left him in there. It wasn't his fault those other drives stalled," Brown said.
Whomever is under center will be without the services of lineman Michael Depree, one of the captains, who has contracted mono. Brown said he was told Depree, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound senior tackle, will miss six weeks.
"But he lost 20 pounds in a week and a half," Brown said. "I don't see him coming back and playing."
That leaves the Falcons with just five linemen.
