“We had a lot of issues with controlling our passes in the first set and we did not play together as a team,” Lady Eagle head coach Britney Shelly said. “In sets two and three, we had more teamwork and enthusiasm which helped keep us focused on our goal which was to win the game. Overall we looked ok and it was a good win for us.”
