We showed a lot of rust with the two weeks off between the travel down to Southern Oregon Renegades on June 3 and the game with the Trojans. We lost the game in turnovers against the Trojans. We took some time these last two weeks to really clean up our tech at the offensive skill" Head Coach Mark Ancheta said.
