    • "We want to make sure that we take their will away and try and come out as hard as we did tonight on Friday night to try and take their will to know that hey, it’s going to be hard to come back and it’s going to be hard to play against us. At the end of the day, maybe the summer vacation starts for them and we move on. That’s the goal here." Hershey head coach Troy Mann has a philosophy for his squad heading into this game.
