Warriors’ deficit at the half

They said it

“We did all right. We started well. We just need to execute better. We’ve just got to find a way to get in better shape or find a way to dig down deep and get more momentum in the second half, becuase that killed us tonight.” – Waccamaw coach Shane Fidler

“During the week is harder. Friday night, it’s already decided what’s going to happen in the game because of how you work Monday through Thursday. We’re just going to move on and focus on St. James and try to do a little bit better next week” – Fidler

“I learned that we’ve got some players that [can play]. We also learned that we’re still a little weak and that’s something that we’ve got to keep working on and that’s the only way we’ll be able to [get some wins]” – Fidler
