We’re continuing to build a foundation for what we want to achieve by the end of regular season: having the experience, quality, and adaptability to compete with any team. We have more work to do, but if the fellas stay committed it will continue to be exciting going forward.” – Coe-Brown’s Christian Gompert

Coach’s quote: “The intensity from the Derryfield fans really played a part in the way our girls played today. We had a great first half in possession and shots, but, other than our second-half goal, we were on the defensive quite a bit. Derryfield did a good job making some midfield adjustments that we struggled with a bit.” – Hopkinton’s Mike Zahn
