“We had a pretty good week, overall,” said Coach Charles Lindsay. “We played well against Hilton Head, which is a well-coached and really good team. Against Bluffton, we played well but had one bad quarter which took us out the game. Bluffton is a strong and well-coached team, and when playing against them, you must play competitively all four quarters. From here on out, we’ll face tough opponents each week.”
