“We are able to go 10 deep on our team without even batting an eye; that’s definitely our strength,” Bontreger said. “We were able to use that depth tonight. Our starters probably played two quarters at most tonight because we wanted to try and save their legs for Friday night as best we could.”
Saving energy for Friday night should definitely be helpful for Bontreger’s Bruins as they will face 15-6 Indianapolis Northwest.
“They are a totally different team than what we play on our schedule and it’s hard for us to simulate the type of athleticism they have,” Bontreger said. “We have to be patient because if we get into a run-n-gun type of game with them, we are probably going to be struggling to pull out a victory. If we can just be fundamentally sound I think we are going to put ourselves in a position to win a huge game.”
