SEG Falcons’ coach Rachel Clark on the win:“One of our worst opening quarters of the season…We seemed to be nervous..It got a little crazy out there…Then we began to play our game“……….”Turned out to be an average game, in terms of how our team plays overall, but it was a very good win, since it gets us on to Round Three on Saturday, with a time to be determined…Again, glad to get the win, but we have to come out, playing our game on Saturday”…”We have been growing in the area of catch the ball and finish, and since all of the players have gotten to know each, they can now read each other’s passes and get good spacing to receive those good passes and finish and that is our game”…”Play the pressure defense, get the steal, or create the turnover and then get out in transition and run with those good passes and finish on the offensive end, and that is what we have to do, to win, we have to do that, as in Play Our Game on Saturday”….

NWG played Thursday night’s game without Cayla King…Liz Kitley was in uniform for the Vikings, but she did not play…Regan Kargo carried the load for NWG, as the Kargo arrived with 29 points attached…Kargo also picked up some of the key ball handling duties with King sidelined, plus Thalia Carter was there to help bring up the ball and set up the offense…..Not sure if King and Kitley will be ready to play Saturday, or if you will see Kitley and not King, or if King is back and Kitley is still sitting….King with the ankle and Kitley’s problem has been that knee……Wait and See, if you ask me, or head to NWG and see for yourself……
