“We had opportunities and we didn’t capitalize,” Westville coach Guy Goodlove said. “When you have opportunities, you have to take advantage of them. When you don’t do that, it’s hard to expect to win. We kept doing the same things we’ve been doing all year, and we’re getting better at it. I thought we played well enough to win and just made some crucial mistakes. “
Next week the Tigers host Milford.
Next week Bismarck heads to Jamaica High School to take on the Salt Fork Storm. Several Blue Devils hope momentum of Friday’s win can carry over to next week.
