We had a tough time scoring on them at their place and that will be our challenge again. Our Saturday game against Findlay is our Senior Day and we know our six seniors want to play a great game against the team that is leading the GLIAC South and want to get a win in their last home game of their careers. We know that will be a great, competitive game on Senior Day."
