NSA has had its fair share of ups and downs during this first quarter of the season. After starting off the season 1-3 the Saints now sit at 4-4. They went on a three-game winning streak, but it was snapped by Churchland High School Tuesday in a 10-point loss.
Against Churchland, the Truckers made a run in the first half, but the Saints were able to fight back and tie the game up at the half.
