QUOTING HEAD COACH KATIE CROWLEY
"After having just one game, I thought it was a great progression from last week with the exhibition game to this week. I thought that the kids took what we said in things we needed to work on and really worked on that and did a better job. For tomorrow, I want to tighten up our D-zone a little bit, and try to get our kids used to that a little bit more than what they've had to face. (Minnesota Duluth) is a good team. They come at you hard. They're physical, so we have to be ready for that tomorrow."
