COACH DOUMA SAID
“Nice to see the good balance on the offensive end. Our passing and ball movement continue to improve. Chad Barkema led us in scoring and continues to make nice progress as a player. We had spurts tonight where our defense was very stellar, but still had some breakdowns that need to be cleaned up. How well we can string together quality defensive possessions will be the key for us this weekend. I particularly liked how we finished the game. The group of Chandler Brunsting, Mark Bakker, Sean Broker, Ross Cooper and Zach Bussard were solid for us the final 7:00 of the game. That group has really developed and played well since coming back from Christmas break.”
