And against a team from Bedford today at 2 p.m. in Lebanon, Kelley said he expects a very similar result.
With the pressure of trying not to lose off his team’s back, Kelley said he feels like Riverfield can play with a much better rhythm and continue its dominance en route to the semi-finals, held next week. He said he still feels a 3-1 record, which would all but seal a spot in the semis, is certainly in reach.
“We got those first game jitters out, realizing the only thing we can do is get better from here,” Kelley said. “I expect to win, and I think it’ll be in a dominant fashion. That’s how I expect us to play, and we’ll continue to get better throughout the tournament.
“If we keep hitting the ball like we are and play defense like we did today, we’ll win tomorrow’s game.”
