Comments from the Coach

"Tough loss for us but pleased with our first half efforts. Marymount defended well throughout the whole game. We had an error in the second half and conceded the goal from a free kick. Then we lost control for a few minutes and that cost us the game. We are looking for a good response from the team over the next few days as it will be a good test for us".

Inside story

The Wolverines will host Marywood on Saturday, October 26th for their senior night. Game is scheduled for a 6:00 p.m. start.
