We had some great plays and effort from seniors Austin Flynn and Robert Haberger and some young guys really stepped up and played well such as Brennan Royce and Carl Szczech. Offensively, we need to get better up front. Credit to Notre Dame; they brought a lot of pressure that gave us trouble. We will take a look at the film, learn and get back after it. Now it’s time to move forward and prepare for Avon next Friday.”
