COACH DURBIN SAID
"Our team played a solid 90 minutes of soccer today. In the first half, we kept a lot of the possession and created multiple opportunities. We just weren't quite clinical enough with our finishing. Overall, I'm very impressed with how we competed today! We're looking forward to taking on Briar Cliff next week."
