Thoughts with Head Coach Tiffany Roberts Sahaydak
"I'm really proud of the team today," Said Roberts Sahaydak. "I believe we did a lot of things well especially in the attack. We possessed the ball and created a lot of chances that unfortunately we didn't put away, but that's something to think about going forward and somewhere we can grow. Carol made an unbelievable save today. All of our game changers coming off the bench played great. We'll keep our heads up and refocus for our next match".
The Knights hit the road again for a match against Utah Valley on Thursday, Aug. 25 at 7:00 p.m. ET. They return home to face FGCU on Sunday, Aug. 28 at 1:00 p.m.
