Senior Caitlyn Harper scored both goals for the day.

     “We went down to CNU with 12 players and an 80% chance of rain in the forecast.  Even with this, however, we not only won but dominated the game. It was a hard fought fight, and our girls gave it their all.  We landed on top with a 2-0 victory as a result of the team bonding and sheer love for the game that we all share. The team never stopped working hard, going that extra inch for their teammates,” said Harper.
