Tolsia Head Coach Ric Morrone
“… I thought our effort throughout the game was great. But we struggled offensively in the first quarter and that was the same thing that happened in the final quarter in our last game against Chesapeake. We are still trying to put four quarters together and I seen some good things tonight and thought a couple girls really grew up but give Greenup Co. credit they shot the ball well. We had some turnovers early but overall I thought we did a decent job of taking care of the basketball. We are so young and still trying to find our identity but we are hoping to build for the second half of the season.”
