“Iaeger isnt a bad team,” Burch Coach Kevin Hatfield said. “We didnt shoot real well from the field, but we got 38 rebounds and 21 of those were offensive boards. And we had a ton of steals. We ran the ball well, rebounded well and played hard.”
Coach Hatfield said the Bulldogs had 13 fouls called against them in the first quarter alone and that forced them to play with only two starters on the floor. Dave Hatfield, he said, saw only about a quarter of playing time due to his foul problems.
“Everyone who got in the game played well,” Coach Hatfield said.
The Bulldogs (1-0) return to action at home Saturday night against Tolsia at 7:30 p.m.
