Postgame Quotes

No. 22 Kansas 4, South Dakota State 0

Sept. 20, 2009 – Lawrence, Kan.

Kansas Head Coach Mark Francis

On the team’s performance at the Jayhawk Invitational:

“I thought the girls did a good job this weekend. Obviously we won and didn’t allow any goals, but on top of that, I thought we played well in both games. I thought these two games were pretty consistent for how we expect to play and what we hope to achieve. I thought both defensively and when we had the ball, we did a good job with that.”

On the play of the defense the last three matches:

“The defense is playing really well right now. Julie (Hanley) is doing a great job behind them, keeping them organized. But I think just collectively as a team, we’ve made it difficult for teams to score. We’ve done a good job of putting pressure on other players. We put pressure on our opponents all over the field, so I think we just have to continue to do that.”

On the play of Rachel Morris:

“Rachel (Morris) has done great. We knew what kind of potential Rachel had, and when you get injuries, it creates opportunities for other people. I think Rachel got that opportunity and has made the most of it. She has gained in confidence every time she steps onto the field. She was the offensive MVP this weekend, which is awesome for her. I’m really happy for her, because she’s a great kid who works hard and I think she’s going to keep giving us good minutes (at forward).”
