“This win means a lot for many people,” said Oceanside coach Matt Petrie. “For the alumni of the last couple years, there was a sense of unfinished business. There were some messages sent right away congratulating the team. The players were were excited to tell the former players. I think with a win, some of the upperclassmen can now play with a little less pressure on them.”

Petrie said the team’s mindset had to change, with staying disciplined and executing being the mantra the Mariners have focused on this season.

“It’s hard as a coach to tell the players that our game plan will work if we commit to it, and continue to lose games,” said Petrie. “This year’s team saw the potential that we have and continued to work hard and play the game together. They listened to the coaches and made plays. They earned this victory, and we hope it allows to continue to grow as a team.”
