COACH CRAIG STIEMSMA SAID
“We had a decent start. Scoring first gave us confidence. Giving up several goals in a half is never a good thing. We battled hard for 45 minutes. That’s just not going to cut it. Hastings got on us early in the second half and caused us to get in a hurry and go away from what we do best.”
