Head coach Katie Crowley
"I thought we were much better today than yesterday; much cleaner, at least in the first two periods. We talked about some things before the game and I thought the kids really did a great job of doing what we said and what we asked them to do. I think it showed especially in those first two periods. I thought we came out hard, didn't give them too many chances at all, made some really nice plays and played together as a team."
