“Facing our top opponents on back to back nights was a great test for us. Everyone played well and did what they needed to do to get the win,” said Rockland Coach Shae Neal.

“Mackay was a thriller,” Neal said. “We were down five with less than 30 seconds to go. With great teamwork and clutch shots we put it into overtime and finished business to grab the win.”
