“We have told the team all week not to look at their record,” Coach Phillips said. “They have played some close games and their talent is better than that of an 0-6 team.”

“Everything comes down to this time of the year,” Coach Ritchey said. “Starting right now, the games count. We learned a lot of lessons over the stretch of the last six weeks. Now it's time to make the best out of them.”
