Thoughts From Head Coach Kelly Nangle "Today was a tough one. Our offense created a lot of opportunities to put this one away, but we couldn't finish. We have to put some work in and get better, but I'm proud of how our girls fought and kept up the pressure and battled with a very good Richmond team. We learned a lot today and got better, which is the most important piece at this point of the season. We have to do this week to prepare for a midweek game with a hot ECU team."
Turning Point Richmond never trailed in the contest and held a 10-6 lead following a goal from Madison Osterick with 17:05 left. The Lady Flames scored three times down the stretch, with two goals coming on eight-meter shots (White and Hannah Quast).
