Comments from Coach Kesim

Steelheads Head Coach Daghan “Dagi” Kesim talked about the match with Skagit. “In this match it was important for us to learn containment after an early goal and we did that very well,” he says. “We also tried many of our players in different positions and tried many players who did not get chances before. Winning is always sweet.”
