October 12, 2011

Very Good.

"I thought it was a much better showing than we had Tuesday," said Coach Evans after the game, "For the most part we played a decent first half, but I told them at halftime that we can't kick the ball out cause they are going to possess the ball more than us, and they did. They are a good ball club."
