BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"Leading up to this game, we talked about putting together a high-energy and high-effort performance and playing that way for 90 minutes. Tonight I think our program did it for 110 minutes. So I'm very proud of the team. I also thought we put together a very solid defensive performance from front to back. We'll continue to work on moving the ball and generating goal-scoring opportunities. That's going to be very important in the team actualizing our potential as we head into the final stretch of the regular season.: -- Head Coach James Lofton

NEXT GAME
Coach James Lofton's team will be back in action Saturday, Oct. 20, at home against Eastern Mennonite University during Ferrum's Homecoming and Family Weekend. The ODAC contest is slated for a 12:00 p.m. start.
