COACH ALVINE QUOTE
"We talked about the importance of having a strong start, especially on the road. We couldn't have asked for more, especially getting a goal in the first couple of minutes. I give credit to Dayton, they came out with a lot of energy in the second half and put us under a lot of pressure. I was really proud of our response to their equalizer. We scored a great second goal to go back up and then killed the game off with a third. Our group is showing a lot of character and composure in difficult situations which is so important as we head into the home stretch."
