"We got outworked for 35 minutes in the second half. That's what it comes down to. Every time we step on the field we should be the highest energy and hardest working team. In competitive games, that's what gives us the best chance of success. I think we can learn from this experience. We have to strive for a greater measure of consistency. That consistency must be practiced. When our level of energy, effort, competitiveness, and communication fall below our standard, we must recognize it and take steps to fix it. But that has to come from within. If we can't or aren't willing to do that, then we'll never play as well as we're capable of playing with the consistency that we desire. But I'm confident we can do it and are willing to truthfully evaluate ourselves so that we can move forward and be a better team in days and weeks to come." -- Head Coach James Lofton

Lofton's team will host Roanoke College, Wednesday, Oct. 17. The ODAC game gets underway at 7:00 p.m.
