“This was close all the way through and I was very impressed with both teams and how they handled the conditions,” said Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant. “It definitely was not easy and made for some incredible points and also some comical points. But really both teams did a great job of adjusting overall and on the fly as the ball was never where it was intended to go.
