Commenting on Thursday’s victory, TMU head coach Curtis Lewis said, “‘One game at a time’ has been our theme. This should always be the case, but for us having so many injuries this year, we have had live it out. I’m very proud of our reserves who stepped in again today and really gave us a boost. It was great to get everyone on the field, and for us to be this deep where we can play our full bench and get a result is fantastic. We have a tough game on Saturday that will be a great challenge for us. We are looking forward to seeing what we can do.”
