South side football works for Coyotes

Penalties, personal fouls, bad tempers and their inability to capitalize, or get off the field on third downs, left Roswell’s football team in a deep hole with 6:38 left in the first half. If not for a touchdown by senior Gabe Najar with 2:17 left in the second quarter, the Coyotes might have been in a bigger hole than trailing 21-13 at halftime against Aztec last week.
