Coaches’ quotes — Boehler on the Vikings: “I did see some positives [in the North game]. We showed a lot of rust, but hopefully we can figure out what our mistakes were and try to improve.”

Martin on the Panthers: “I’m pleased with the effort the kids have had. We just have to find more offense; one key to that is not turning the ball over as much as we have.”

Boehler on the Panthers: “They’ve got some nice young big kids and coach Martin does a great job of getting them ready to play. They always play us well.”

Martin on the Vikings: “I really like West Vigo’s team. We’re going to have to try to limit them to one shot by doing a good job on the boards.”
