"We were once again very clinical in front of the goal, especially in the first half," stated head coach Ian Doherty. "The work ethic and commitment this weekend has been great to see. We're scoring goals and keeping clean sheets, which is exactly what we want every game. Hopefully we continue this strong run throughout the season."
