|| COACH EVANS QUOTE:
"Another tough loss. We had plenty of opportunities, but couldn't finish when we needed to. I was happy to see captain, Tess Drotar, get back on the scoreboard for us today. She gave us a spark of momentum in the last portion of the first half, we just couldn't keep that going."
