“It's tough to lose it that way in the end, but they're not the defending Northern [Class] B champs for no reason,” said Mount View coach David Page. “We played them even and went toe to toe with them the entire game, but in the end their experience, and our inexperience, came through. The girls aren't satisfied with just playing well. We're disappointed and will definitely learn and grow from this one.”
