Coach Allen’s comments after the game:

“highest scoring PG vs t high game  of all time.  thought the warm weather affected both teams conditioning.”
“I thought we need to work on some things defensively and thought the girls showed mental and physical toughness and just kept fighting throughout the game to get us to 6 goals., the most we have ever scored vs them. Our previous high was 5 goals.”
