Head coach Mark Francis
“Coming off the last game, our goal was to come out with a consistent energy and intensity from the first whistle. The girls did a good job of doing that. We came out with a good intensity and jumped out early to lead the game.
In the second half we decided to press them higher up the field and were successful forcing turnovers in their defensive half. We finished our opportunities very well and had several other good chances that their goalkeeper did a good job with.
I’m excited about the progress from the last game, especially in our offensive phases of play.”
