Talking about the game: Head Coach Hideki Nakada
"It was exciting to see this group play in a game environment for the first time. We are certainly ways away from getting to where we want to be, but it was nice to see so many different options we have, and the team showed a glimpse of what we are capable of, and I am excited for this group moving forward. We will continue to work to get sharper and cleaner on both sides of the ball to get ourselves ready for the season opener against the University of Portland."
