Tolsia Head Coach Todd Maynard
“… No we really challenged our guys defensively because we thought we could score but we had to keep up our energy on the defensive side. We are a small team that has to crash the boards before we can get out in transition.”
“… Our philosophy is to win each quarter and we will win the ballgame. We preach that every game. We want to apply pressure and make them start their offense farther out. I thought we executed our game plan well.”
