After the game, GL head coach Chris Loeffler was happy to win but knew the team could play better. "It was a little sloppy. I think they played with a lot of energy," Loeffler said, "We did just enough to keep them off -- you know, where I felt like we need to do a little more."

GL hosts Cranford on Thursday at 7 p.m.
