"Another team we outshot but handed an early goal to is the most disappointing thing for my staff and I. We have to cut these mistakes out of our play and we will be fine." -- Head Coach Enda Crehan

Crehan's team will be back in action Saturday, Sept. 22, at Randolph-Macon College. The ODAC game is set to start at 3:30 p.m. in Ashland, Virginia.
