"Second game in a row vs a #1 ranked team; this time #1 in Division 4, our conference favorite Marshall. As a team we talk about and understand playing games against great competition is how you continue to improve and prepare for a post season run," commented Coach Kevin Parman. "Marshall is a very talented team lead by 2 D1 committed players. We have areas to improve but overall I'm happy with our growth."
