"I thought we played relatively well given the field conditions," said Coach Evans.
For the bulk of game on Tuesday it was the Rangers who were dictating the pace of play on a beaten up and muddy LRUHS field. The team came out early and was aggressive on the ball, winning 50/50 battles and keeping the play in the Mill River end.
