Coach’s name and quotes/Comments:
A poor first quarter (6-16) ultimately derailed us in a hotly contested game in Waterville. I really liked the spirit our guys showed as they fought back to climb within 4 points, three different points of the 4th quarter. However, costly turnovers (22 total) and poor shooting (31%) was too much to overcome. Every instance I thought we were ready to get over the hump a turnover and missed chip shots would prevent us from getting all the way back.
Next Game: Dec. 27th at Waterville Christmas Tourney
