“When you have those early games they kind of kill you,” commented British Columbia Head Coach Cory Philpot after the game.” I’ve been there before.”
“It was important for us to wake up and get the rhythm going. Once we could get that rolling, we were successful.”
For Manitoba, their loss came as a result of timely opportunities that British Columbia capitalized on during the game.
“We had two special teams turnovers that they turned in 14 points on us,” assessed Manitoba Head Coach Ryan Karhut. “We lost by thirteen so I think that pretty much clears it up.”
