Comments from the Coach
"We came out slow with it being senior night, but we had a great second half with Aleya scoring the first goal with help from Mackenzie was awesome. And then second goal was so creative for Megan to find the round and pass it to Emily for the finish was great. The competing and the energy the second half was what we needed to secure this win".
The Wolverines will now hang tight and watch as the remaining conference schools finish out their regular season play which will determine Atlantic East schedule for the next week.
