"It was muddy and sloppy - and a fun exciting game," he said, noting that the players were covered with mud, and struggled to keep their face masks cleared of dirt. "The kids felt great because they knew it was a good team they'd beaten."
Looking toward the Rensselaer showdown
Monday, Bennett said his players were looking forward to their showdown with Rensselaer, and that the Rams were tough opponents.
"They're big, they're strong, and they're fast," he said, noting that a win would likely give them a No. 1 seed in the upcoming Section II playoffs. A loss would place them at No. 2 or No. 3.
With one regular-season game left in 2009, Bennett said he was pleased with his team's performance this year, particularly the players stepping up and filling vital roles due to injuries or other issues.
"Every time we lose someone, a player steps in does a fantastic job," he said. "We're playing really well as a team."
