BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"This game was about playing with courage, having an aggressive mindset in the attack, being overwhelming positive, and writing our own history. I'm proud of the result, but I'm much more proud of the manner in which we did it. We played courageous, intense, exciting soccer, and we stayed true to ourselves and our core values in the process. For me, that's what it's all about. All the credit goes to the team." -- Head Coach James Lofton
Lofton's team advances to the ODAC Tournament quarterfinals, where it will face #1 seed Bridgewater College Wednesday, Oct. 31, in Bridgewater, Virginia.
