“I couldn’t ask for a better game and a better goal to win it,” said head coach George Gelnovatch, via the Augusta Free Press.
“I give our guys a lot of credit, in the first overtime we controlled the whole 10 minutes. We didn’t panic, didn’t start to do things any differently and by the second overtime Koffi just went out and did his thing.”
With the victory, Virginia advanced to 6-0-1 against Pittsburgh all-time. It was the Cavaliers’ fourth overtime win of the year and the second overtime goal credited to Koffi.
