It wasn’t the start West St. John coach Robert Valdez was looking for. “You want your first play to be something set the tempo but we set the tempo the wrong way by turning the ball over. Those mistakes, whether you are young or not, they are not easy to swallow. They don’t help you at all and it’s hard to overcome those mistakes, especially against a ball... Keep Reading
