Gaels head coach Pat Sheahan was quick to give Western credit following the loss. "We knew they would be up for the game and we got into some injury trouble today with four starters going down [to injury]. Then we were gone off our systems and unfortunately we got out of playing to our game plan," he said.
"Full credit to Western, they played a very strong game and they were well prepared," Sheahan added. "We have to be better to beat a good football team."
