After the victory, Willingboro head coach Steve Everette said this to NJ.com:

“To beat a team with a 25-game winning streak, it takes an effort you can’t back down from, you can’t shy away from,” said Willingboro coach Steve Everette. “You can’t shirk on lifts, you can’t cut corners. Our kids have done it right and we’re 12-1, we’re regional champs and it feels really, really good.
