Despite a final score of 47-11, the Pima Community College football team put up a good effort on the road Oct. 30 against Snow College.
Pima (2-7, 0-6 Western States Football League) was handed its sixth straight loss by the home team from Ephraim, Utah.
The Aztecs played well in the first half. After the first quarter, the score was 10-7 in favor of the No. 17 Badgers.
Neither team scored in the second quarter, so Pima still only trailed by three at halftime.
The second half started out well for the Aztecs. They returned a blocked field goal attempt by Snow and returned it to the end zone for two points to make the score 10-9.
After that, the fireworks were over for PCC. The team surrendered 37 points to the Badgers in the second half.
Pima would manage to get just two more points for the rest of the game.
The Aztecs turned the ball over seven times. Freshmen quarterbacks Zander McKean and Zach Schira each threw two interceptions and Pima fumbled the ball three times.
The Aztecs will play their final road game of the season in Thatcher against Eastern Arizona College on Saturday, Nov. 6, at 6 p.m.
