Lebanon 5,
Coe Brown 0

Quote from the coach: “Tonight was a good old fashioned beating. We had five games in 10 days, players in and out of the lineup, and I think that caught up with us. If we had had the passion and energy of a week ago, we would have faced a solid Lebanese team. But we made mistake after mistake and they jumped. Even with games like this you can learn something. Our boys didn’t quit and they supported each other until the end. We know what we are capable of, but it doesn’t come without hard work and a bit of courage. We’ll see if this weekend’s days off bring that spark back. – Christian Gompert of Coe-Brown
