BALDWIN – The good news for the Baldwin Panthers in Friday’s home game against undefeated Farwell is the Panthers scored 30 points.

The bad news is Farwell scored 70 points in a 70-30 win. Baldwin fell to 0-4. Farwell led 24-18 at halftime.

“For them to be as good as they are and to be undefeated, we hung with them at the half,”  Baldwin coach  Bob Watkins said. ‘We have to work on our special teams. They ran three kickoffs back for scores. Toward the end, you could tell the fatigue was settling in on us. We had a bunch of missed tackles. I’m never happy when we lose. But I can’t be too disappointed because they played a lot better and it seems like we’re getting better.

“But we’re making mistakes and we dug a hole which we couldn’t dig out.”

Carmelo Lindsey and Jalen’e Allen scored touchdowns for Baldwin. Gabe VanderGeld did the kicking for Baldwin. D’Andre Baldridge also had some nice runs to set up scores.

“David Lee came in and played some line for us and middle linebacker and had a good game for us,” Watkins said.

The Panthers play at Brethren on Friday.

“We can match their athletic ability but we have to figure out a way to go a full four quarters,” Watkins said.
