VALDOSTA, Ga. (WALB) - Valdosta State hosted Ohio Dominican in their home debut.

The Blazers took the lead early and only stretched their lead as the game continued.

In the days leading to this match-up Head Coach Gary Goff had concerns on his team’s lack of familiarity with the Panthers.

“My fear this week is that we were going to overlook Ohio Dominican, you know they’re a playoff team let’s not lose sight of that,” said Goff. “Three guys on our team knew who they were on Monday. So, you know it scared me all week that’d we just ignore it and overlook it and the head coach was going to show up and they were going to play. But, they didn’t you know they took them seriously so I couldn’t be more proud of that.”

The Blazers host West Alabama next Saturday.
