SHERMAN, Texas (KTEN) - The Sherman Bearcats have not had trouble putting points on the board this year but finishing games has been the challenge. 

After nearly blowing a 28-7 lead against Princeton in their first win of the year, Sherman took a 20-point lead to the fourth quarter of their opening district game against Frisco Centennial. From there, the Bearcats were outscored 35-0 in the final 12 minutes.

This week at practice, head coach Josh Aleman and his players have emphasized wanting to play a complete game.

"It's about executing and keeping our energy," said junior running back Kane Bowen.

"We don't have time to sulk, nobody feels sorry for us," said Aleman. "We're going to go out there again and play football again on Friday.

Sherman hosts Lebanon Trail at 7 p.m. on Friday in their first home, district game.
