Nothing to reproach, the boys left everything, we had many situations and we couldn’t be effective“, summed up the coach.

It hurts our soul because we did everything to be able to continue in the championship, but I am leaving with the peace of mind that today it was us, the team showed a lot of calm when it came to playing against a very physical opponent, we played the game they used to do and it couldn’t happen.”
