Our defensive pressure was finally able to wear down an athletic White Swan team in the second half.  After a blistering first half where we trailed 33-37, we held the Cougars to only 13 second-half points, including outscoring them 14-4 in the decisive fourth quarter.  This was by far our most consistent and balanced effort of the season and we are excited to start our difficult league season on the road with a victory.

Coach Erik Helleson reports:

Record League/Overall:   4-3

Our defensive pressure was too much for a short-handed Mansfield team as we raced out to a 37-6 halftime lead.  It was a great opportunity for our reserves to get a lot of playing time as they contributed 24 points.
