“I feel confident, I feel pumped,” said Taylor Savarino, number seven for the Lady Commodores before Wednesday’s game.

When asked how she felt going into today’s game, and the team strategy going in, she had this to say, “Well, we’ve lost the last two games, but I feel like we have learned from our mistakes. Today we are going to start off on the defensive end, instead of the offensive.”

It was a slow start for the Lady Commodores, giving up three quick goals. They picked it up towards the end of the half when Alana Gonzales scored the ladies first and only goal of the night. The defense showed more energy and defensive pressure in the second half. The final score of the game was 4-1, a tough loss for the team.

After the game, Coach Jessi Paul had this to say, “We need to improve on our team chemistry. We need to get back on each other’s good sides and communicate better.” When asked how she plans on getting the team ready for the next game, she said, “More subs next game, we have a few injuries that really hurt us. We need to focus on each other’s strengths and communicate more to each other. We have to be ready to play.”

The Lady Commodores next home game is Wednesday September 23rd, against John Carrol JV, at 4:00.
