"I was happy with how we came out and started the game," said NCHS coach Matt Chapman. "We came out with intensity winning 50-50 balls and playing well."
Collinsville would tie the game on a goal by Zane Baker 12:48 into the first half. A Kahoks' score by Luke Liljegren with 15:58 remaining in the half proved to be the game winner.
