“Fife is a tough building to play in and they came out with a great effort and we just didn’t have that compete level you need to succeed at this level.

“But it is always important to win your home opener and it was a good opportunity for us to a man to have a good bounce-back effort.

“It was good adversity early in the season for us as a team to really bear down and find that will to succeed and will to win.

“Every guy in the room really took it upon themselves to find a way to get the win.”
