Aug. 20, 2017
On the four quick goals to start the game:
“We talked about getting off to a good start because of the heat and Wright State being from Ohio and not being used to it. Honestly, I didn’t expect a four goal output in first 11 minutes, but we are very excited about that.”
On transfers Galbraith and Kruetz:
“We had high expectations of both Amanda and Caitlyn. We knew with what we lost from last year, we needed to find a way to replace those goals, thats why we brought them in. Amanda coming in from junior college is a big jump, but she’s a quality soccer player and our preseason training environment allowed her to play at the faster pace.”
