Jamestown head coach Ben Drake told Two On Your Side's Stu Boyar"It was a great early season matchup for us. Its a great event to be part of with all the good games in it. Its the kind of game you want o play early in the season to find out where we're at."
Stu asked Drake where he thought his team is after winning their second straight game to start the season. "I was proud of the way we battled through some adversity. We got off to a good start. St. Joe's made some adjustments that took us out of our game but we responded well in the third quarter. "
Drake said that "Campion played great tonight. When we were struggling to score we were finally able to him the ball and he came through for us."
St. Joe's head coach Mark Simon told Stu "it was kind of an ugly start. Jamestown jumped on us early and we were fortunate to be down just one at halftime. It was a grinders game. Every time we fell behind we came back. They made plays and we didn't. Tommy Campion is a great player. He definitely was the difference tonight."
