"As a result this was a great playoff battle! Both teams pushed for a winner with back and forth action all game. We have to give Central credit as they found a way score against us in the run of play, which we hadn't allowed since playing at La Salle last month. I'm so proud of what our boys have accomplished this year despite many setbacks."
