Sod Poodles GM Tony Ensor joined NewsChannel10 on Sports Drive Live to talk about the matchup.
“Their team has really turned over in the last month or so. They’re gearing up for us.” Ensor said of the Missions. “I’ll be honest with you, I like our guys. I’ve said this from day one... These guys are gonna bring this thing home. I really feel strongly about this team. I think they have a great shot.”

“They gave us everything we wanted on the last road trip when we were in San Antonio.” Ensor said. “They played us very tough. It’s not going to be easy. They’re a very talented team.”
