COACH HANSON SAID
“Streaky play was the theme of our match today. We had a few bright spots in our blocking and scrappy defensive pursuit. The timing and rhythm of our offense will need to continue to grow for us to be competitive against these veteran ranked teams. We look forward to playing at home this week on Thursday night.”
