Ss. Peter & Paul coach Evan Oswald the boys played very well as a team. “It was great to see the boys execute on the offensive side of the ball and they played very aggressive on the defensive end as well,” Oswald said. “Each member of the team made an assertive effort to make sure we got everybody a chance to score tonight,” Oswald said. “It was great seeing all seven kids put the ball in the basket. I was very proud of how we moved the ball around until we found an open player. We will look to build off the positives from this game and continue to work on any miscues that happened. It was a great Warrior victory tonight.”
