Neely and Riss lauded the poise their teammates showed as the game hung in the balance. With such a close win already in their pocket, the two believe more victories could be in their future.

“We kept our heads up, and kept playing the way we know how,” said Neely. “This past week, this is all we’ve been focusing on. We’re just looking for respect.”
