"This was a big game for our freshmen," said offensive coach Jason Gault. "Offensively I thought our line did a nice job of creating holes for our runningbacks. The backs kept from fumbling and ran hard for the whole game."
"Our defense was pretty stingy today," said defensive coach Joe Delvaux. "The Vermillion/Yankton rivalry has always been a big one, so coming out on top of this battle was a huge boost of confidence for us. I'm proud of the way we played today."
