“Not to sound cliché but tonight was just not our night. If you had told me that Brynlie would be scoreless and we still had a chance to win. I would have said you're crazy, "said Coach SErol STauffenberg. "Unfortunately the ball just did not bounce our way. The ladies played hard we just were not able to pull off the win tonight. Give Northwest credit then made the plays at the end of the game to win and that’s what happened.”
