QUOTES:

TRU head coach Chad Grimm:

On Match:

We came out in the first and had a big lead. Middle of the set we let it go and pushed to the end which was great. In the second, we started to show some frustration because we were undisciplined.  We couldn’t seem to turn it around.We made some changes in the third and fourth and the energy was better. Execution was a key. Credit to MacEwan, they played better today but we thought they would.”

UP NEXT:

The WolfPack have the bye next weekend, which is the final one for Canada West play before the Christmas break.

They will have an exhibition holiday scrimmage tournament at the TCC December 29-31 with USport ranked Dalhousie Tigers of Nova Scotia (AUS) and the UBCO Heat (Canada West).
