Lake happy with overall performance

"We started the game with great intensity which translated to scoreboard pressure and gave us great direction. 

“We still fumbled a little and will need to sort that out over the next 2 games. We now need to win strongly to have a chance to play in the final. 

“All players in the squad have now experienced International Cup footy and hopefully that now transpires into some quality outcomes."

The Mozzies next match is against USA on Saturday.
