Coe-Brown 3, Kingswood 0

Coach’s quote: “Our defensive back line was consistent throughout the game and saw a barrage of heavy hits from Kingswood. The guys did well to win a ton of those 50-50 balls. In the second half, our offense did a better job of collecting our clearances, which made a difference in the game’s outcome. Our offense came alive in fits and spurt in both energy and game smarts. Heading into the last leg of the season, we are looking for the team to string together consistent performances in which they are working hard, seeing the game well and playing off each other. When, and if, they do that, they limit our opponents chances, generate a ton of their own and are very competitive.” – Coe-Brown’s Christian Gompert

I was pleased with our level of play against a talented team but am looking forward to more when we play Pembroke next. ” — Head Coach Kylee Yam

Defense on both sides of the court stepped it up and absolutely refused to let balls go down. We did a great job staying composed and continuing to make good serving and offensive choices, ultimately coming out on top, 30-28.

Coach’s quote: “Tonight was a battle. Any rivalry brings out extra energy and emotion, and we know when we play Oyster River both teams are really going to bring it. The match was a back-and-forth of who was attacking and serving the smartest and toughest and who refused to the let the other team put the ball on the floor. One of the prime reasons we were successful tonight was the energy. When the players on the court were down, the energy from their teammates on the sidelines rose to fill the gap. One of the best compliments we’ve been receiving this season is about the energy and enthusiasm of the players every point, no matter whether they are on or off the court. We hear over and over again how clear it is to those watching that the team is all in and playing for each other.” – Coe-Brown’s Renee Zobel

Records: Coe-Brown 11-2; Oyster River 9-2
