Coach Quarandillo says...

"I know that a lot of people are watching us and reading about our results each week.  I realize it looks dim and I really feel for the guys.  We have only won three games in the last two seasons and that is very tough for the guys.  We do have a very small roster of very young players, and against teams like this we need to keep things in perspective.  We can't do much better right now.  My young guys are running the entire game trying their very best against teams wth twice the amount of players we have.  We look at some of these games as incredible training sessions that are only going to make us better.  We are communicating with a large class of freshmen coming in next year that we hope will make a big impact bu, but for now we still have a few games left and we won't quit."

 

How It Happened

Limestone attacked the net early with a shot on goal by Guilherme Gloria, but Will Hughes got between the ball and the net to keep the Saints off the board.  The Saints continued to attack, scoring the first goal of the game five minutes in off a low shot by Raphael Bartmann.  They extended their lead to 3-0 minutes later on back-to-back goals by Josiah Ortiz.  Southern Wesleyan continued to pressure, however their attacks were called off sides to prevent them from cutting into the Saints lead.  Limestone led 6-0 at the half.

Southern Wesleyan challenged early, but an off side call prevented the Warriors attack from paying off.  Limestone countered with several attacks, but the Warriors defense and Will Hughes prevented them from succeeding.  However, the Saints would not let up and two more goals got through to put them on top 8-0.  Shots by Noah Sims and Zackery White were thwarted to keep the Warriors off the board.  Limestone won the game in a 13-0 final.
