Devils pay close attention to Coach Drake during their timeout.

The Owensboro Red Devils battled the Owensboro Catholic Aces for the second time this season at the Sportscenter. With another win versus Catholic at the Sportscenter, us at Owensboro have decided that playing at the Sportscenter is like playing a home game.

When asked about what generated the team’s comeback, Gavin said “We just settled down and played our game. We knew defense was going to be a big part in that so we just did what we had to.”
