Defensive coach Rod Thompson was proud of the way the team played against the Wolves.
“I thought we played well and did a lot of things,” said Thompson. “We got to be sure and stay aggressive and not get complacent.”
Offensively, Coach Pete Medlock said that the team had a few jitters in the first half, but was happy with the overall production.
“We looked a little sloppy and unpolished offensively,” said Medlock. “But we had some good production as well. Cade (Cornett) threw some nice footballs tonight and we had some good execution from our backfield tonight.
