We came out of the gates and played well this game. The offense was a little stagnant at times but the guys did a great job of adapting to what the defense gave us and made it count. Defensively we played solid all night and did a really good job on ground balls which helped with our transition game. Anytime we can get a good win over a SVL opponent we know it is a well deserved victory. BCW is a solid team and gave us a good push but we were able to weather the storm and come out on top. Good win but still lots of season left to be played.
