Hennessey won the game, 28-20, but the game was competitive to the final minute. After watching film of the game, Beller said that Crooked Oak played an “inspired” game and that the Warriors could take notes from it as they prepare for an upset bid against Hennessey on Friday.
“Both teams played well, and we felt like Crooked Oak took the fight to them,” he said. “They didn’t let the name on the front beat them, and that’s what we have to do as well. We have to match that intensity and do it one score better.”
