Coach Joshua Brown, “We looked out of sync defensively and that’s on me. County Line is a tough match-up for anyone. I didn’t have us ready defensively. I thought our guys competed until the end. We got it to 13 with about two and a half minutes to go. Proud of their fight. We have to come back Sunday and get ready for Hackett.”
