What She Said

"The girls came out with a great start today and that showed with a lot of chances early on in the first half which, unfortunately, we struggled to finish. In the second half, we put a lot more focus and attention to the little details and were rewarded in those efforts with multiple goals. It was truly a full team effort today to earn the result and we couldn't be more pleased with the application of what we've learned from the previous games and training sessions leading up to this point."

- Head Coach Meghan Gorsuch
