Coach Jason Huska was satisfied with the performance.

"Defensively we did a nice job. The kids are beginning to understand how to play defense together. Offensively, we hurt ourselves on drives as we moved the ball but then have a breakdown, but we hung in there and played hard. All aspects of our game are improving," he said.
