The boys pull out a win after a slow start

The boys started out slow against Felicity, which allowed them to be in the game until the closing minutes. We came out with a little more intensity the second half which allowed us to go on to victory. It is a week until our next game which will allow for some good practice time. The next game was changed to an away game at Blanchester.
