Matchup: After losing their last three games the Kaplan Pirates are banged up, but Kaplan coach Tank Lotief said his team would keep grinding and try to get their season back on track. “I think some of our guys are pressing to hard,” Lotief said. “Our young guys who have stepped in have played beyond our expectations, but we’re pressing too hard and maybe the coaches are too, but the difference between defeat and victory is inches not miles.”

Lagniappe: Lotief knows his team needs to turn around their season and is ready to see how his team responds to the challenge. “When you’ve got a dog pinned against the wall he’s either going to bite you or roll over,” Lotief said. “I think our team is ready to bite someone, but we’ll see.”
