Alex Brenton on what coach Bob Emery said during a second-period timeout: “He gave it to us. He let us know what was what, and I feel like after that we came back and we answered.”
Emery: “I thought we controlled the play down deep behind their goal line for the most part all night. We didn’t have a lot to show for it. We gotta get a little dirtier and play a little more tough in the paint, getting to some rebounds in the offensive end.”
Brenton on what Plattsburgh needs to do against Oswego: “We’ve just got to outwork and outsacrifice them. We gotta block shots. We gotta take the man. We just gotta play our (butts) off, for lack of a better word.”
