“I’m not sure how we won tonight,” Wilmington coach Amber Marett said. “Hats off to Laurel, they outplayed us in every aspect of the game.

“Their serving game was extremely aggressive and we were scrambling to just keep the ball in play. The only way we won was heart and hustle.”

“Wilmington is a solid team. We found some things we have to work on and hopefully we’ll get them corrected.”
