QUOTES FROM COACH LINDVALL

  • “Our girls were outstanding today with how tactically engaged and bought in they were. We were a little unlucky early in the second half with a clearance that deflected backwards and resulted in a goal. For about a ten minute stretch we lapsed a little with how we wanted to play tactically, but for the remainder of the game, I thought we were great. Proud of these strong women and the grit that they showed tonight and this entire season!”
