“We still have some guys injured. We’re not playing with a full squad yet; we only had one sub [Monday],” Eastern coach Jon VanMatre said. “Mississinewa is a quality squad. They have a lot of speed and they put a lot of pressure on our back line. But when we settled down, we got a lot of good looks, we just couldn’t finish.
“We probably had four different guys get really good shots on goal. Their keeper was excellent. He was probably the difference in the game.”
