Head Coach Louis Stephens III spoke on the mental approach to late season matches. “Road trips are great because you are able to measure your team’s focus and hunger," Stephens said. "Being away from your family and friends takes sacrifice. But we came together for one common goal, and we won’t stop until we reach it.” 

Co-Owner and Chairman Devon Joslin had very few words this weekend about the road win and looming playoffs. "No win is given in sports," Joslin said. "It is earned. Championship teams don't just set goals; they hunt them down. Here we come."
