Lawrence Co. Head Coach Scott Johnson
“… We started slow after having a week and a half off since our last game. But late in the first half we finally got comfortable with the pace of the game and started moving the ball around. We had an outstanding defensive effort that didn’t allow JC to get any momentum started. Offense was slow to come around but when it did, Blake had space to move and the other boys really supported well. It was a great first round game for us!”
