COACH ALEX DURBIN SAID
“I am glad to see us come away with a clean sheet. After the first few games of the season allowing multiple goals, it was good for us to come out defensively sound. We also came out of the gate ready to play. The first 15 minutes of play we created multiple opportunities but just need to be a little more clinical in front of the net. Overall I’m very pleased with how we competed as a unified front. This team is exciting to watch.”
