and [the first eight] in the third quarter. You give Kent Island a 20-point spot, that’s not a good place for you to be as good as they are.
“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.”
