"We got work to do. We've been finding out some things about some people," Ridgway coach Todd Voss said. "I think we got some real good motivation here to win on Friday. That was a good win for us. That was a young team but Peter (Butler) always coaches well."

â€śA lot of inconsistency,â€ť Johnsonburg coach Bill Shuey said. â€śWe canâ€™t seem to put a whole game together. Although I thought in the third game there was more consistent play than the first two. You can tell by the score, it was the closest of the three. Although, there we were, we probable had that game won a couple times and then just made three errors in a row.â€ť
