and we caught up with the head coach after the game.
Falcons Head Coach Stephanie Anderson was pleased with her team’s performance in the second half.
“You know the biggest thing going into this game was that we were worried about us. We wanted to focus on playing a game that looked like us, playing as absolute hard as we can, moving the ball just doing the things that we do in the first half we didn’t do that as all,” Anderson said. “So, honestly when we went in at halftime not much was needed to be said. I basically looked at them and said that’s not us. And that’s not okay so we need to make sure in the second half that doesn’t happen. So, thank God there is a halftime so we can adjust things and move on.”
The Falcons pick up their second win of the season and will host Davis and Elkins College this upcoming Saturday.
