Thoughts from Coach Wedemeyer
"I feel that we have been improving in different ways every game, and it was good to see the team find a way to win today. It is also great that we are getting contributions from a variety of players, with Molly (Andres) making a big save in the second half and Kelsey (Adams) getting the game-winner."
