"I think we know what we are capable of coming out of the first half.  We have to be disciplined from back to front and there is now way around that," said LVS head coach Jay Fitzgerald.

As it stands in the Lady Vikings final regular season match of the season they live to play another day.   "When I saw the first lightning strike, it couldn't have been a better sign, " continued Fitzgerald.
