The sport is a magnet. It will attract kids.

There was a real turning point for us where we finally learned how to handle the ball under pressure.

We just couldn't carry over the quality play we had from the weekend games.

I thought our defense played very, very well.

There'll be more competition for spots. For a coach, competition is great.

Lacrosse is a space game, in terms of spreading the offense and running the fast break. You can't really get that in the gym. We got double the grass time that we've had up to this point.

The kids played real well. It was a good game for us to have at that point.

In terms of knowing the game and stick skills, we're head and shoulders above where we've been.

Against Dawson, we started out very slow and got ourselves in a hole early. They were a good team, but I think we made them look better than they were. We just didn't get off to a good start.
