“Our guys came in pretty focused and ready to go,” said Coach Chad Pulkkinen. “As a Windham alumni and a Windham resident, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Windham team keep a team scoreless in a quarter; that was impressive by our guys. They took the challenge to really step up their defense and did a good job there. Nick had a special moment joining the 1,000 Point Club and he really deserves it.”
