“This was a nice all around victory. The girls all played well and really worked together to implement some adjustments we’ve been working on this week in practice,” said Head Coach Nicholas Drollette. “I was happy to see our midfield control the pace of play. Their touches on the turf were certainly improved from the last time playing on that surface. Across the board I was pleased with the play of all 16 girls tonight.”
The Blue Devils continued to control the game in the second half. Senior Michayla Salatel scored again 11 minutes into the second half, earning herself a hat trick.
