Quote | Head Coach Craig Hendry

"We started really slowly. Too many players taking too many touches. 3 goals in a five minute period set the tone for the rest of the game. We'll have to start better vs Fontbonne on Saturday."

What's Next?

The Woods women's soccer team will be back in action at home on Saturday, September 28th, at 5:00 p.m. ET. The Pomeroys will face Fontbonne University.
