It wasn't the turnout they hoped for but Skip Cody Sutherland, said they had some great match-ups, "We kept all our games close and we had chances to win all of them but we couldn't capitalize."
Sutherland noted they just have to work on their weaknesses for a better game, "All the teams have been tough this year, everyone had improved since our first spiel. We just need to start improving our self too."
Ahead of the third and final Q-Spiel, Sutherland said they will have a few games to brush up on their skills, "We're just going to stick with our league games and have a couple more practices and be prepared for the last Q-Spiel."
