“We did not stop them tonight, but we just tried to contain them. They played well and we hung in there with some things and I am just proud to get the win. I was pleased with the serving because we have been struggling with that, but we battle back tonight and did a real good job.”

We did a good job on the net, both offensively and defensively. Our serving is getting back to where it should be but there is still room for improvement.”
