QUOTABLE – Head Coach Natalie Dreyer
"The coaching staff is very proud of the overall team effort we showed today. We made some changes at halftime and came out with more intensity. Amber Taylor embraced this mentality and in the first four minutes chased a ball down from a clearance off of Olivia Allard and finished with composure. We are excited about the perseverance the girls displayed and we were pleased with the way they maintained the lead."
