Bronco head coach Robbie Cutchins stated after the game, “It was good to get off the ground and get running. We dived right in it, we got four games this week. But we have put a lot of work in all ready. We got a lot of kids out here that have no experience and have not seen the bright lights before.

Especially having not seen JV and jumping right into it with varsity is very impressive to see what they did tonight, and I am proud of them. But, we have a lot of things to work on and a lot of things to get better, and I look forward to it.”
