“Tonight was a good win because everyone got involved. From the starters to the bench players everyone played their role and it was a good way to start the season out and get the win,” said Rajoppi. “What we can take from tonight is when everybody runs through the plays the way we are coached to do, we will be successful, and if we don't, that's when turnovers and bad shots occur.”

The Bulldogs will embark on a two-game road trip starting Tuesday, December 19th at rival New Providence (7 p.m.) and will visit Roselle Park on Thursday with first tipoff scheduled for 5:30 p.m. is Springfield’s free daily news source.
