“Overall it was a classic battle. It was a very intense match. It could have gone either way at many points. The girls played hard and defended well for much of the match, which I was pleased with. “

“I thought we had a couple of really good chances in the first half that we could have done a little bit better with, but we created some great chances. The second half we defend well. We had to defend some difficult crosses and some difficult corner kicks that were played in there.”

“The girls played well and battled. It was a great match overall with intensity. Please with the road point against a ranked and very good Wake team who has been getting results this season. We will get ready for Clemson on Sunday.”
