Bulldog Soccer Head Coach Kyle Snaitecki
“… Girls did a great job of possessing the ball, just took us a little bit to settle in and create quality chances. its tough sometimes when you play a team like that, who just sits in and defends, takes some time to spread defense out and get chances to score. Overall, good night and did what we needed.”
“… Once again showed our dominance in district play. To win the title for the 7th year just shows how this program has built success at that level for multiple years. It’s always a good feeling, but now its about being consistent at the regional level. I told them to enjoy the win, but quickly focus on JC in the regional semifinal.”
