A ll season Iron Mountain’s defense has been the band-aid to stop the bleeding. If the offense made a turnover, the defense would get it back within a few plays.
Interceptions turned into quick three-and-outs for the Mountaineers’ opponents.
Fumbles lost were countered with fumbles recovered.
Any wound inflicted on the Iron Mountain attack could be covered and healed by the athletic and fiery defense.
But not this time.
