PLYMOUTH â€” Argosâ€™ roster is sprinkled with seasoned scorers. The Rockies have struggled to find the finishing touch this year.
The combination added up to an 8-1 rout by the Dragons at Kindt Field Wednesday.
â€śOur offensive production with these guys really bloomed last year in the tournament, which enabled us to make the run that we made,â€ť said Argos head coach Todd VanDerWeele.
â€śI thought this was probably the best game weâ€™ve played this year. They moved the ball well. I told the guys just to bring tons of pressure and we did when we had the ball and when we were defending.â€ť
