Hint of arrogance in McArthur's victory over Alexander

While the Laredo Morning Times rightfully praised the Alexander Bulldogs for their very successful season, the San Antonio press seemed to be put down Alexanders effort in their 56-20 loss to the Brahmas. reported the following headline about the game.
McArthur not satisfied with pasting of Laredo Alexander : The ensuing article went on: MacArthur quarterback Clinton Killough said his team was frustrated as it sat in a silent Alamodome locker room at halftime. Their performance may have been enough for a 56-20 victory against Laredo Alexander before about 7,000 fans on Saturday. But with a Class 5A Division II state quarterfinal next week against Steele, it wasn't enough for the Brahmas.
It turns out the gist of the article was that McArthur's coaches and players were overall disappointed by how they played against Alexander, despiter their 36 point margin of victory. In a way it makes sense that their team always wants to play better. Then again, did they think they should have beat Alexander 70-0 or what? I mean after all, Alexander is from Laredo and it still seems that San Antonio takes beating Laredo for granted.
