Coach's Notes: Before the game started I demanded that my team move past the recent distractions and respond with a team effort. My team approached the pitch as a refocused team; a team determined to stay united, a team motivated to get back on the road to their goal. The energy, and effort my guys put forth was too much for Highland to handle. My entire team contributed quality minutes, 7 guys contributed to the goal scoring, and the ability to maintain possession was excellent. It was also nice to get D-Roe out of goal for a few minutes to mix it up with the guys on the field. When the game ended I reminded the guys of the importance of being humble and gracious in victory. I reminded them of the importance of leading by example and I also reminded them of the team who eliminated them from last years MHAL Tournament.
