“We have to do a better job of handling the pressure in the second half, but all that matters is that we got the win and we are moving on,” said McDonald. “You have to find ways to survive and advance at this time of the year and to do it this way, with everything that happened in this game, is pretty special.”
McDonald, who scored 12 straight points for the Vikings (32-1) as part of a first-half ending 15-2 run, said his group expected a push from DGN (23-12). But he never had a dip in confidence that his group would find a way to advance, despite joining fellow starters Garrett Sneed and Kross Garth on the bench. All three fouled out in the fourth quarter.
