“With this game, even with the adversity of losing a player and playing down a man for the last 35 minutes, we didn’t get down on ourselves. We stayed mentally tough in the game, mentally focused,” Turner said.
“We’ve had two games we really should have had a shutout.”
The Berries (3-2) have now won three of their last four with wins coming against West Lafayette, Anderson and Jeff.
“It was just mainly maturing a little bit and I know it’s hard to say but guys have to be mentally tough, because we have the talent,” Turner said. “Even when we played at Harrison, we gave up four goals, score two. And if you watch that game, you see that for 20 minutes each half we were in the game but for 20 we weren’t.
Gonzalez talked about his team’s improvement over the last two weeks.
“I think it’s good conditioning, too, that we’ve been getting better at. Getting faster and pressuring the ball better, and probably just staying in the game more, playing more physical,” he said.
Turner said his team is hitting its stride after a couple of tough early losses.
“That’s the team I was expecting to have so I was very pleased with that,” he said.
