“We came out and bounced back tonight against a tough team in Chamois,” said Prairie Home coach Trever Huth. “Chamois came out and played great defense like they always do and we had enough on offense tonight to get it done. We haven't been as sharp the last two games on offense but we really fought hard tonight to get this win. Defensively is where we really picked it up tonight after a couple games of not playing very well on this side of the ball. This really gave us great moment throughout the game and kept it close all game long.”
