QUOTABLE – Head Coach Natalie Dreyer
"I told the girls before the game that this would be a very good Lyon team. But we were prepared for this day. The girls are buying into what we are doing. It was great to see Makayla utilizing her speed and score two goals. I told the girls that we have had four different players score and we have had assists from different players, and that shows a team effort. That is why we are in the place we are now. I can't stress enough we have to focus on Friday."

The Eagles will host NAIA Williams Baptist College Friday, September 8, at 2:00 p.m.
