“We were just going too fast and not taking care of the ball. We had too many turnovers in the third quarter, and we didn’t rebound as well as I would’ve liked in the third quarter either. I thought we did well in the first half of the game, but the second half wasn’t great,” said South Fork head coach James Peacock after his team’s 70-53 loss to North Mac Thursday.
