“As a team, we have to move up and down as a unit,” G-A coach Lorraine Hohl said. “This is challenging, especially in the heat … but we can’t control the weather. We must adapt and control what we can control.

“This week we will fine tune our defensive skills and enhance our offensive abilities.”

Alishya Thurmont assisted on a goal by Ainsley Swindell in the second quarter for Greencastle (1-1, 1-1 MPC), and Thurmond scored in the third period from a pass from Carlee Knepper.
