“Avenal was a very strong team. They are coached very well and they have a bright future ahead of them,” said Allen Perryman, Hanford West head coach. “I really liked how well we executed on both sides of the ball. Us as a coaching staff thought that was our first game we played a complete game. We had a lot of mistakes in the first quarter, but we cleaned it up after that.”
