"(Faribault) was really classy about it," Davis said. "They started subbing down in the third quarter, and so did we. But you always want to take that zero off the board."
East had 13 yards of offense in the second half, though most of that came from the reserves. Brett Duit was the leading rusher with 57 yards on three carries.
"Every loss is frustrating," Makovsky said. "We need a lot more energy in practice. We had a good one (Thursday), but you need that every day."
East (0-2) hosts Rochester Mayo in a Big Nine game Friday.
"It doesn't get any easier," Davis said. "Mayo is one of the top three teams in the conference. We're going to have to show some grit and toughness. More than we did tonight."
