COACH HAFNER SAYS: On the St. Ambrose Game: “It was a hard-fought game that we just did not finish. We had a bad stretch at the start of the 3rd quarter and they took over the game from there.”

On Waldorf: “This is another opportunity for our players to compete. We have decided that there is no more looking ahead. We are focused on one practice, one play, and one game at a time. We will focus on the things we can control, which is ourselves and playing our best on every play. We will be getting back to some old-school ways of treating and playing the game the way it is supposed to be play–fast and physical.”
