Audible 1: " I'm very pleased with how the guys played, but we can do better. The kids buy into the system and that's a big thing. Hopefully we keep working this summer to get better and do some damage this fall. " — Alford

Audible 2: " Of course tonight's result is not what you want, but in my mind the kids we have right now are winners. What encouraged me is the kids recognized what they did wrong tonight and know what we need to do to correct it." — Hudson coach Justin Fenton
