”That non-goal was a tough call,” said head coach Jimmy Hinchion. “It seemed by the body language of their goalie and defenders that the goal should have counted. We had our chances though and played a fantastic game. I couldn’t be more proud of the way the girls played tonight and especially for the way they put this night together for teammate Nicole Harrison. I’m sure it’s something they’ll all never forget.”
Hinchion also mentioned Kylie Plaza as having a terrific game for the Falcons (9-5-1).
