COACH HANSON SAID
“Jamestown is a strong team and we knew we would have to battle them point for point the entire for long periods and we struggled to do that and that’s the separation right now. I think the friction point right now is knowing what we are capable of and seeing us struggle to execute in so many different areas.”
