Coach Riley's comments: "This was a great start to our season. Friday was our first day on the field to practice so we knew we would be rusty in some parts of the game that you can't simulate in the gym. We feel excited about our performance and the fact that we had so many different guys contribute that we will have some good healthy competition for playing time which will in turn make us a stronger team."
