“Very good start to our season,” said Coach Pat Smith, “Really thought we played well against a very competitive Marshalltown team. Thought our defensive intensity was better and did a great job of sharing the ball. However, the games only get tougher starting with John Wood CC tomorrow night and the two challenges we always have for our players; improve every day and win the next game. Big week for the Hounds.”
Moberly returns to action on Tuesday, November 5 as they host John Wood CC with a 7:00 pm game start.
