Comments from the Coach

"The team has been doing a good job forcing corners and putting shots on goal. We have been working hard on offense and today we were able to get the three players on the scoreboard.  Kaila Hindt carried the ball well and had some great crosses, while Hanna Giaccone got some great touches inside the circle.  I was happy with our performance and we are looking forward to celebrating our seniors Wednesday at our final regular season game."
