“It felt good,” Decleene said. “At halftime we talked about how we didn’t play well in the first half. It’s a tough team we have and all year we have fought through adversity. It’s very special. We have been working for it and working towards it. Last year we came up just short. The returners def had a chip on their shoulders.”
“Our kids stuck with the game plan,” Leonhard-Perry said. “We made plays down the stretch. We got stops. We practfied that yesterday, cutting down the nets, so they would know what it feels like. I wanted theme prepared for everything. They were tight. They stayed with it. And they were on a mission.”
