At the end of the match coach Austin Huggins of Spurs, was not completely satisfied with the performance of his team, but was happy for the three points. “We managed to control possession. We were in total control of the game, we scored two brilliant goals and we eased up and allowed them to come back and score two and we had to fight to get the third goal. But nevertheless that’s how the game is won. Now we can take the valuable break and get ready for the re-start of the season in January,” Huggins said.
Meanwhile Coach Asim Jenkins of St. Peters regrets that his team keeps making mistakes that costs them the game, as was the case Sunday night. “The result is disappointing but I think we showed some spirit, we showed some fight. Mistakes cost us. Overall we did OK but the mistakes we have to cut them out,” Jenkins lamented.
