“This was an extremely tough game for both teams. The defense was intense and players were aggressive,” said Panther head coach Rommy Herrera. “This was a hard loss for our team.”

“This was a great win,” said Falcon head coach Kris Rusch. “Our first ever [win] over Plymouth on the road. The guys knew what this game meant.”

“We hope to see them in the playoffs.”
