You lose your head sometimes, but tonight we regained it."We've only had one other real close game this season, but now we've been in that position and we know what we need to do to win the game. We need to take care of the ball at crucial times. And we got an amazing defensive effort from Ian Miles.''Miles helped hold Winfield's top scorer, Zach Fisher, to three points, about 13 under his average. Fisher poured in 25 points in the Generals' victory over the Redskins earlier this season.
