COACH ALVINE QUOTE
"Obviously we are disappointed to have our season end this way. I am really proud of the team for battling today. La Salle is a difficult opponent and this was a tough game. We were just one minute away from advancing to the finals, but we didn't close out how we should have. This most disappointing thing is we're going to lose our seniors who helped build this program. However, we are still excited about the future of Duquesne women's soccer and where the program is right now."
