“We’re probably the youngest team in Region XIV and at times it shows,

 Blinn head coach Michael McBride said. “We were outworked in the first half and made too many errors, which was disappointing. However, our work rate and decision making improved as the game went on. Now we have to get back to work to prepare for another tough opponent on Wednesday.”
