Saint Patrick Head Coach Adam Guerra says despite the loss his young team showed signs of a bright future and will only get better and better. “The conditioning was good and the plays were there,” said Guerra, “we just need to execute them.”
With only three returning starters on offense and four on defense, Guerra, in his first game as the Shamrocks head coach, says, “We’re a young team but we’ll take advantage of the players we have and keep grinding.”
Guerra adds, “It’s always good to get back to game two especially after dropping game one.” The Shamrocks will do just that as they look to rebound against Glenbrook South.
Saint Patrick will play at Glenbrook South tonight at 7:30 pm.
