"Wow! What a match," said PC Coach Bob Black. "We were up, down, back up, and almost lost it with 4 opens the last Baker games. Huron has a nice team and it's hard to beat them there. I give our players credit for coming back. Jacob Reed subbed the first game and finished with 5 consecutive strikes which made a difference for us. Sean struck 23 out of 40 shots which we needed."
