“We played an outstanding game in every dimension,” said Borgia Head Coach Grant Kang. “We had a strong start, played with heart, kept a good mix of short and long passing, and won the ball defensively. Coming into the game, one of our goals was to start the game with intensity, and to maintain that intensity throughout the game. Our players met the challenge and we got a good result from the game.”
The Knights won a nonconference game at Fatima Monday, 3-0. The JV Knights also won, 2-1.
Borgia received goals from Ben Kang, Jake Erwin and Adam Meyer.
Meyer, Kang and Luke Schriewer assisted on the goals.
“Fatima is consistently a top-four team in Class 1, and we knew going in that this would by a typically athletic and aggressive Fatima team,” Kang said. “We had another good game with consistent intensity from start to finish. We controlled the possession, and had about 80 percent possession according to our stats. Our team play continues to develop by improving weaker areas. I am happy that we were able to win the game because we deserved to win, and deserving to win and winning are two different things.”
