We're going to need to continue to play good, solid team defense -- we need to refine that even more. But even more importantly, I think we need to finish off our opportunities when we get them. Right now we're about 50-50 in converting some of those opportunities into goals and we need to make that more of a certainty.

We were able to do the things that we've been working on in practice really well. We weren't out there just to 'out-talent' people.
Maggie Hannon had a really good day on Sunday. She has shown signs of growing and developing as a player. Maggie is learning to take advantage of her natural skills.
I felt like we received a good team effort throughout the weekend. It was nice to see the team in good spirits and happy for one another. Our bench was excited and cheering for their teammates. It is always a positive and an important factor for success to have a team gel as a unit both in and out of the pool.
