“I thought our team played an incredible game of soccer today,” said head coach Michelle Jacob. “We asked them to come out strong, and that is exactly what they did. We were able to put in an early goal and then continued to have good combinations on the field, possess and create quality shots throughout the game. We are very proud of our players and their performance.”

The Huskies wasted no time scoring in the opening minute. MacKenzie Jordan scored off a rebound created off a save by the goalie.
