“”Hodgee(Joe Hodge) He had the same thing in the cup match and wasn’t out for long, so hopefully Pedro won’t be out for long.
“He’s been a big part of what we’ve been able to do so far, but however long he’s out, the group is ready to make sure we keep putting in performances and keep picking up points.”
