“We knew we had to come out and play hard. They played us very hard in the first half, and then our defense was very strong tonight. That’s really been our focus this year. Our defense has improved tremendously,” Sackets Harbor coach Jeff Robbins said.
“We played a little sloppy early in the game, but we picked it up and played good defense at the end,” Griner said.
“Some shots that we normally hit, they didn’t go in. We looked at it and decided to lock down on defense and not let them score,” Marcus Castine said.
