According to Coach May Dow

I was happy with our defensive effort and how they were able to make their rotations but at the same time, press up. This was a good game for us to get back into things and to find the back of the net again. The energy level was up and it was nice to hear the girls cheering each other on and encouraging different options of play.

The Trojans are now 4-4-1 and will play host to Mount View on Tuesday, October 3rd at 4 PM.

Washington Academy is 0-8 and play host to Presque Isle on Tuesday, October 3rd at 4 PM.
