"Solid team shape and organization enabled us to get our first shut out of the year," said Coach Lawson. "Our attack was dangerous tonight as we improved our tempo and spacing in the final third. I'm confident as we continue to gain experience, our timing will allow us to finish at a higher rate. It was a hard fought battle and I'm pleased to get a result considering they have had our number the past two seasons.
