COACH JENNIFER MYHRE'S COMMENTS
The team knew what was on the line in terms of conference standing and was ready! We showed up and came with the intensity and discipline to press and finish the game off! It was a great strike from Holly and we battled defensively to the end. Our backline was a solid unit coming in with key moments. Emmalee Paarlberg had another strong game as well! I'm proud of the focus, energy and unity of this team and I look forward to finishing the regular season strong on Wednesday.
