"The boys came out right from the beginning sharing the ball and playing good defense," said head coach Jason Greenfield. "I was a little nervous coming into the game after a two day break, but they played a great game against a good CV team."

While only three players scored for CV on the night, they got 20 points from Seth Huyler.
