“The game on Saturday was a big win and put us back on the road to winning as a team again. We were able to adapt to the weather and play our game. It was not an easy win with the weather, but the players on field were able to play through the conditions and give us the early lead. We also got a lot of support from the teammates that showed mental toughness by being able to support their teammates in the bitter cold,” Ryan Sankey, sophomore midfielder, said.
