Head Coach Johnathan Stark said of the game, “I thought the team did a really good job of playing hard and playing together. We started off the first quarter really intense and ready to play, and we were able to maintain our intensity throughout the entire game. We had some really tough calls against us early in the game that went against our momentum, but we showed maturity and mental toughness by being able to overcome them and stay focused. I was really proud of some of the guys on the team at the end. We put in some of our subs and JV players, but the quality of play on the field stayed the same, and we won 41-0 against a team that has a lot of talent.”
