"I would not say we had a ridiculous amount of time to practice. There are just so many small things throughout the match you know, really proud of how we played. It is not like we were completely lost and getting owned," said AYRIN, going on to explain how GE found so much success on pistol rounds.
"We were playing pistols really grouped and trading really well. Into the gun rounds we just forgot that a little bit as a team, but that is something we are definitely going to fix going into the Pacific League."
