Head Coach Holly Smith's comments after the game: " We came out the first game today and it was the first time that I have seen this team not play as a team. With a little encouragement in between games, game 2 was a much better team effort. For the first time I thought our defense did not show up to play. We had opportunities to win both games but we just didn't get the job done."
