Inside info from coach George Champayne: “The girls worked well together in the first game of the season. We have a talented young team with six or seven girls that really know how to play the game. I haven’t had that in 10 years.”
Inside info from sophomore Nina Dym: “At first it was hard to see how we were going to work together, but towards the end we figured out.”
Player of the game (per Champayne): Senior Aidan Galati, “because she played outside fullback and stopped their right side.”
Special recognition (per Champayne): Junior Natalie Brown, LaComb and Kaufman.
Next game: At home against Sacramento Waldorf on Friday, March 11, at 3:30 p.m.
