Coach Will Owens says they started off in game one much like they did against Parsons and started to let things get away from them. He says about the 4th inning he saw some guys take a step forward and help turn the tide to where they want to be. Coach Owens says they asked the team to take the next step and be dudes on the field, which showed up in game two. Next game is Friday at home taking on Fort Scott.
