“It was a great battle today. Traveling and playing on the road in the same day is always a challenge, and I was really proud of the effort,” Head Coach Julie Shackford said. “Grace Lemley had a great day at the office, thwarting some really dangerous opportunities. Defensively, we were happy not to give up anything in the run of play. We look forward to getting to Albert-Daly Field this weekend!”
