HEAD COACH EDDIE RADWANSKI QUOTE
“Our girls gave a good effort tonight,” said Head Coach Eddie Radwanski. “We needed to put one of our chances away in the first half; we can’t just leave those chances out there. When you don’t take advantage of your chances, you leave the door open. Then, we made a mistake for which we were punished. We will learn from it though, and will improve and get on to the next game. It is a long season and we are going to take it one game at a time.”
