Refugio still has a long way to go. IMO they were pretty uninspired against Santa Gertrudis last night. Fumbles, missed assignments, penalties, all led to a less than stellar performance.

2016 Refugio 31, 2017 Refugio 20 according to Calpreps. However, they have a disclaimer that comparing the same school, in different years may not be very accurate. It's probably not fair to compare a State Championship team to a team that has only played 3 games.
