"Tuesday's game against Caledonia/Spring Grove was an all-around good game for the GMLOK Bulldogs," said coach Doug Reiter about a 5-3 loss to the Warriors. "Although there were a couple of errors and fundamentals that can be cleaned up, I think that our true potential as a ball club showed through."
