Kevin Hofstad had 19 points and three 3-pointers for the Bulldogs, who scored 24 points in the third quarter.
"It was a (Mount Vernon) home crowd, there was great intensity, it was a good environment," said Call.
Going in to Mount Vernon, Call knew he had to prepare for the Bulldogs' size.
"They are very big... across all positions. We knew they were really strong inside. We focused on defense in the interior," said Call.
"We knew we were going to give up some threes."
They did. Mount Vernon had a total of nine 3-pointers.
"It worked out for us," Call said.
