Coach Austin Huggins of St. Peters was full of praises for his team. “We were not really scoring as much as possible in the games gone by but we are working tirelessly as we are getting closer to the (Final) Four and we can’t get into the Four unless we score goals. So, I very much like to say thanks to the team for the performance tonight,” Huggins said.

Manager of Southstars Akins Phillip said his team suffered a massive player departure this season, but they will be building with a young core and return to the Premier League. “We lost about 14 players. So, what we have here is a young group of players and it’s a process…the youngsters just need confidence and believe in themselves. That’s the most important thing,” Phillip said.
