We were able to dig ourselves out of an early hole and brought the score within 1 going into the half. Both teams played a hard, physical game. It wasn’t a pretty win for us, as we struggled to handle Everett’s pressure and turned the ball over way too many times. But, we didn’t give up and continued to sit down and focus defensively. It was definitely an all around team effort and I am proud of my girls.” There was no JV game.
