It took MGA the better part of 75 minutes to truly break through our defense. I am proud of the organization and heart the girls played with tonight. Senior Carlee Dykes played one of strongest games of her career. Senior Katie Ann Fitts stepped in and made a huge impact with the battle that the back line had to deal with tonight. Freshman Amber McNeal is truly coming into her roll as a center back. She made some major plays tonight protecting the goal. We are looking forward to our double header this weekend," Head Coach Seth Semones said after the game.
