“They were hit­ting their shots,” Grif­fith con­tin­ued. “They played with a lot of en­ergy. We got hurt on the boards a lit­tle bit early, and later in the sec­ond half. We did a good job box­ing out ini­tially, but they got a lot of sec­ond-chance and third­chance shots. A good team like that you can’t give that many op­por­tu­ni­ties to.”

Both coaches agreed their teams did not play their best game of the sea­son, but Plumer liked the fact his team had more than enough pos­i­tives to re­main on course in what is shap­ing up to be a re­match with Stephen De­catur in the Bayside ti­tle game.

“He’s a good coach,” Plumer said of Grif­fith. “So we know they’re go­ing to play up to our in­ten­sity. It’s just, can we keep it up? I don’t think we played our best game tonight. I think we’ve got a lot of good still to come. But we do what we have to do to get the win.”
