Today's game has special meaning as our game was dedicated to Lax-4-Life to raise awareness for suicide prevention and awareness. Both Upper Moreland and Pennridge were playing for the cause and purchased shirts to help raise awareness for Lax-4-Life. Both teams really played hard and with heart tonight.

It has been a long two weeks for our team with things just not coming together the way we were in the beginning of the season. We struggled with the fundamentals and basics and just weren't clicking as a unit. We are getting back to what we know and how we play and had many more bright moments in this game than the last 4. While we still have things we need to fix and work on we are definitely on the right path as we head into the end of the season and playoffs.

Emma Meakim had a great game with 3 goals and 3 assists and just was a solid player for us today. Alexis Lamb also came up big for us tonight with 3 goals a 2 key groundballs. On the draw controls Cassidy Hirsch did a great job with 7 and was also a solid player for us in the midfield. Both Moira Olexa and MaddieGrace Wood led the team in groundballs.
