With the next series being against Framingham State, in which the first game. BSU lost 11-10 in double overtime in a thriller. A couple days later, they were supposed to face off against Framingham State again but, Framingham had a COVID case, so they cancelled that game.

I asked about how their thoughts on the seasons and the captain Brennan said, “It went very well considering that we are in a pandemic.” as Hilled added on, “t was a lot of fun, and I’m proud of everyone for sticking through it.” 

Brennan also said, “I felt very excited just to have another chance to get out there, even if it was short.”
