 The next opponents are going to be tough, but Tyler Cooper said “We can win if we believe.” Salem is facing Lehi, then Spanish Fork.

Salem has already played Maple Mountain and Lone Peak. Both slaughtered the team. They lost by 35 to Lone Peak and 27 to Maple Mountain. If Salem wants to succeed this season they need to get in the game.
