NORTH TONAWANDA —
"You're going to have (these) nights, but I was a little more disappointed in the way we handled ourselves when we got down," Meetze said. "You really learn about the character of your team when things aren't going well. I was more disappointed in the way we carried ourselves. … The credit has to go to them tonight, though. They played great, had a great game plan and it worked real well."
Blue Devils forward Adam Fron scored a team-high 12 points and Noah Whalen chipped in with 10, including two 3-pointers. Chris Woodard scored 12 points and grabbed eight rebounds for the Jacks.
Mountain is hoping his team can continue the momentum it generated in the win and said it all started by getting beat up by Niagara Falls.
"It sounds funny, but the Falls had a lot to do with this win," he said. "That was the worst beating I've taken as a coach in the five years I've been here, and I didn't have a problem with it because that team most likely is going to win a state championship. I firmly believe that. There wasn't a better team in the state that was going to prepare us to play Kenmore West, and that's the way we looked at it."
