"At times we played well and at times we didn't play well during the day," said G-H coach Scott Mitchell. "For the most part, we competed throughout the day. We had some injuries that affected us, but we cannot use them as an excuse.

"We played well enough to win some games and did not pull them out. We need to find ways to persevere and make the plays, since we do not know how long the injuries will take to heal."

G-H (9-3) hosts Storm Lake Thursday, and plays in the Carroll Tournament Saturday.
