“The goalie needs to be more than just the last line of defense. I have to be vocal, putting our players in the optimal position to make a block,” Goalie Ella Maisano. Maisano tallied 17 blocked goal attempts against De Anza.  

De Anza came back during the second half to lessen the lead, but the Rams offense proved to be too much.

“I feels good to get the win in the end, we shared the ball and we played as a team,” Julia Lane, who lead all scorers with six goals said.
