THOUGHTS FROM COACH LINDVALL

  • “I was proud of our girls for battling back today. We did really well creating some great purposeful possession sequences, but just need to be a little more consistent with how we move the ball. Some great goals today and absolutely a great team effort to pick up the win in overtime.”
