Missed opportunities early hurt East St. John in its 33-12 loss last week to unbeaten Terrebonne. “We didn’t capitalize early. I think it should have been at least 21-0 early-on. We drove the ball well but didn’t capitalize in the red zone. Defensively, I think we started off pretty good. However, we kind of gave up some big plays. It happened one time on fourth down.
