Head coach Jess VanLoy had this to say about the games. "Both teams we faced today were on the back end of their spring trips, having played 15 games already. We came in after a long travel day a little sluggish. We have some little things to correct, but I am happy with the progress we made from game one to game two. Tomorrow will be a better day for us!"
