"This was the game we desperately needed," said Huskers coach Mike Rescigno, whose team fell to Somers in the 2016 Section 1 final. "Even if we lost, we needed a test. Last year it showed in the final game. We got owned, no bones about it. At halftime I said, 'Listen, we weren't tested last year. I just want to see what you're made of. I want to see you fight. I don't want to talk about the scoreboard. I just want to see you fight.'"
