Coach Amy Freeman Winslow
"Against Hawaii and San Diego State the players did extremely well under difficult circumstances. Hawai'i was a monsoon, but we managed to capitalize on their mistakes. In the SDSU game, the players knew it wasn't a must win game, which took the pressure off. Karen Boardman played a great game. She was only in for 20 minutes and scored three goals. This weekend we're excited to be home. We're two-thirds of the way to the WAC Tournament but the job's not done. We need to come out and have a successful weekend."
