We were a little shaky in the first half. But we started executing our plays and started wanting it more.

We knew what we had to do and we wanted a state championship.

Now we know what it feels like to be here. We know what we want to do next year. Now we see how it is losing. So it will kind of motivate us to win it.

It's really disappointing because we wanted it. But one team had to go out the losing team.

We played them before, so we knew what to expect. We knew our advantages and disadvantages.

I don't think we expected a blowout. We wanted it from the get-go. Our expectations were up. We knew where we wanted to go, and we did enough to get there.

They were key plays, and I got open. I think the second half was a gut check for us.
