From Head Coach Andy Wagstaff

"Tonight we played extremely well. Davenport is a top class team and we did a very good job of coming out and having a good go at them right from the start of the game. All of our lads worked their socks off and showed amazing character to go and get all three points and keep the pressure on NU at the top of the league. Tonight's win gets us a top-two seed and a place in the GLIAC Tournament Semifinals. We need to rest and get ready for a huge game at Ashland on Sunday!!"
