“I don’t like losing and I’m not a fan of losing,” said UAPB Head Coach Dr. Ted Flogaites. “There was a little incident pre-match which I felt was distasteful; I think respect is extremely important. Having said that, I thought they were a good squad. They are very deep and athletic. Justin is a good coach and they were deserving of the win; however, I don’t think the score line was indicative of the game. I thought they were better in the first half but I felt we came to play a little bit more in the second,” said Coach Flogaites.
