With this being the semi-final league game Lakers head coach Jeremy Braitenback said the game went pretty well as expected.

“We figured it would be a grind, a tight game throughout, and tense every play could have decided the game, but we will take the win,”Braitenback said. “Our defense played really well keeping them to 10 points today.”

He said the players have improved from the last game, something they are always striving to do no matter what the score of their last gamewas.

The players have improved defensively but Braitenback said they still have room for improvement as they ‘gutted it out’ during this game.

Braitenback has been working with the players all season and said everything is going as expected.

Coaching the team he said he can expect highs and lows in player’s performance with some of the players having better years and otherplayers still needing to improve on their playing ability. But all in all he said the team works well together.

“They love being together and that makes a great team and more than anything when times are tough like today that’s what gets youthrough it is each other,” Braitenback said.

The next game will be the final league game and the Lakers will be up against Stettler. This game will be played Saturday at 1:30 p.m. at H.J.Cody School.
