“This was a game in which we did not play well at all.  Everything was a struggle offensively.  We had hoped to play better heading into District action.  Jake Ruzicka had a great game and really carried us offensively down the stretch.  Will Shanahan also played one of his better games.” -- Coach Kevin Scheef.
