Coach’s quote: “Our midfield did a great job winning the ball and building the attack in the first half. Limiting and disrupting Kennett’s possession by half field. We adjusted at halftime and our forwards put a lot of pressure on their back line. Winning the ball in the final third and generating chances on goal. Great team effort today. ” – MV’s Nick Dagostino
