“We threw it all around the court, at times it felt like they had 10 guys out there.” said Hillsboro head coach Bruce Miles. “We did a real poor job of handling the pressure in the first half, and we dug too big a hole to climb out of. In the second half, I was extremely proud of our effort. The guys never gave up.”
