Tolsia assistant coach Wade Cyrus
“… Played really well at times, played really bad at times. At one point in the game we had 5 freshman on the field due to some nagging injuries. Extremely proud of those guys for stepping up and finishing the game with a win. It’s hard to replicate Mount View in practice due to all their speed. But for the most part we contained them. We had numerous opportunities to put more points on the board but made costly mistakes in the red zone.”
“…No game this week due to orange in Wayne Co. and next week we were supposed to play Hannan but they have folded. We are looking for a game as of right now.”
