Tolsia Head Coach David Thompson
“… Good win for us to snap a two game losing streak. Always good to win in front of the home crowd.
“… We started fast and they never recovered. Buffalo has had our number for a while so it was good to get one against them.”
“… We played a bunch of kids and that will only help us the last three regular season games. It was a must win for us just like the next three to get into playoff contention. We are back on the road for back to back trips into Virginia and you never know what you will be dealing with.”
