    Is this the start of the ascension to PAIX BOUCHE? we will have to wait and see only time will tell, but it is about time we make that curve.

    A win is a win so I will take this one but I sure didn’t like the way we played. To beat better teams we need our best team and I am disappointed we didn’t go with Daren Bravo, Sunil Ambris and Hamilton instead of Riefer, Kyle Hope and either Blackwood or Dowrich. Our future looking good as long as we play our best team
