“We created a lot of chances. We didn’t take advantage of our chances. It’s kid of been a synopsis of the season. IT’s a frustration for us.

“We had a ton of chances. Their keeper made some really good saves to keep them in the game, for sure. She played well and they defended well. I thought Syracuse fought hard and we weren’t good enough around the goal tonight.”

“We needed to be aggressive, we needed to take the game and take the tempo of the game. I think we did a good job of that. We just didn’t stick a chance away.”
