But Hans (Schumacher) is so good that if you make a mistake he has the ability to make you pay. He did, we committed a bad foul and then we lost containment on him for 30 seconds," said M-W Coach Ryan Robinson. "We controlled 80per cent of the game and we were doing anything we wanted after half time. We just couldn’t put it away."
"Brennan Harmer played great on defense tonight and Gabe Murphy was a workhorse. Our offense and John McCall with Cody Schweinberg was doing everything but put it in the net. We are getting better every game now.We have to bounce back and prepare for our Dan Rose weekend. We are back on the regular schedule now so we can start to build continuity. Great game tonight and the guys learned a lot." added Coach Robinson.
The M-W Boys and Girls will host Colton-Pierrepont teams at the varsity and modified level on Saturday in the Dan Rose Weekend. The Girls Varsity and Modified games will be played at 10 a.m. and the Varsity and Modified Boys games will be played at noon.
