Comments from the quote

"Our game was a great one. Both teams played very well. Defensively we had some great saves and were able to keep them from scoring, despite their number of corners. I was happy for all of the players; Julie Snow had some great crosses and for Hannah Giaccone to get a touch on that cross was awesome for her. I am so happy the team was able to pull out a good win against a top quality team". Coach Short.
