QUOTES FROM THE COACH- Zachary Jacobsen, Assistant Coach
"A couple players stepped up massively as we asked them to fill in positions they are not used to playing. For much of the game, we kept our composure and focus, which I think showed. There was a brief lapse and they capitalized on scoring a late goal on us. It's good to see these improvements and carry on momentum."
