COACH BRUECKNER'S QUOTE
"Today was a good team victory against a very tough Centenary side. We challenged the men to leave Mississippi on a positive note after the Millsaps match. They responded by playing very well defensively, capitalizing on a couple of scoring opportunities, and finishing the game with a clean sheet. Now we will regroup and start preparing for our first two matches at home."
