“… Been a real tough stretch for us plus we are playing short handed. Great overtime victory at Bath Co. which we all really needed.”
“… Didn’t play very good at Prestonsburg and Belfry with Bol Kuir standing 7-3 is a different animal all together. Dawson Bellomy and Trenton Adkins really battled inside with that big boy. Thought we played hard except for about a two minute stretch and that really cost us. Proud of our guys though because earlier in the year we were taking off 10-12 minutes a game and now we have improved on that.”
“… Hopefully the schedule that we have played will prepare us for postseason play. We have went through the gauntlet.”
