Comments from the Coach
"Of course, the win is the most important thing, it doesn't matter how well you play or how many chances you got. In the end everyone wants to know if you won, and we did, and we are happy with that. We still have to be more clinical in the finishing and a bit cleaner on offense and be aware of the counter but it's an opening win for conference play and we are excited about that" Coach Clark
The Wolverines will head to Old Westbury, a non-conference match up scheduled to begin at 1:00 p.m. Saturday October 12th.
