Our defense, consisting of Teresa Cato, Rena Contract and Abbie Rorke, was strong throughout the tournament. Goalie Amelia Leyden made some great saves and
kept us in every game. Rebecca Lovelace and Izzy MacFarlane didn't get on the scoreboard but contributed both on the offensive end and defensive end.
