Head Coach Eddie Radwanski Quote“We gave a good solid performance today, earning another valuable shutout and three points on the road, which is always good in the ACC. I thought it was a solid, professional performance as we were mentally locked in and had great concentration. Pitt competed hard, and our girls competed equally as hard. We scored two nice goals and everyone who stepped on the field today made a great contribution. It was a team effort and we didn’t let our standard drop, which I feel led to us gaining the victory today. It was a great weekend for Sandy and our defense, as we came away with two shutouts. Most importantly, we gained six points from this road trip. We’re pleased about the win and how we went about it, but now it’s time to travel home, get refocused and start thinking about Duke for next Saturday.”
UP NEXTThe Tigers return to Historic Riggs Field on Saturday, Oct. 13 for a Senior Day matchup against the No. 17 Duke Blue Devils. The match is scheduled to start at 5 p.m.
