Coach Jon Kreiner, who celebrated his birthday on Friday, was pleased with the way his team battled back and locked down on defense, “After getting behind early we played a really great 2nd half and an excellent 4th quarter. It was a great game with a number of lead changes and some good offensive play but our defense really gave us a chance in the 4th quarter. We had a number of opportunities to win the game but in the end we put Brock to the line too many times and gave them too many 2nd chance opportunities. Carolyn Fragale had her best game of the year and Druery played a great 2nd half collecting 7 offensive boards and was a big presence inside.”

The two teams will rematch today at 6PM.
