Comments from the Coach

"Salisbury was executing at a very high level and just doing things differently than we've seen in the past. They did a few things on offense that they took advantage of and we didn't make the plays we needed to make. In the end we made a lot of good play's, but they made more. It has been a cat and mouse game over the years, and we make an adjustment then they adjust to that adjustment and we go from there and that is how it went today. We will work hard this next week in preparation for William Paterson next weekend". Coach Knapp

Up Next:

The Wolverines continue on the road to William Paterson next weekend Saturday, Oct. 19. Game time is scheduled for 1:00 p.m.
