BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"Our women played tough tonight. Lynchburg is a great squad and I thought we did a pretty good job of slowing the play at moments. It was really a two and a half minute stretch where we lost our focus and gave the game away. We've got to learn to stay engaged and composed, even in periods of chaos. Now we look to bounce back in front of our awesome home fans during Homecoming this weekend." -- Head Coach Carrie Hanshue Austin

NEXT GAME
Coach carrie Hanshue Austin's team will be back in action Saturday, Oct. 20, at home against Easter Mennonite University during Ferrum's Homecoming and Family Weekend. The ODAC game gets underway at 11:00 a.m.
