Coach Riemersma had these comments on the 2-0 victory:
“I was really happy with the way we played today. We moved the ball well, were physical and our communication was better. It was a good end to the regular season. I’m excited to see what these girls can do in the post-season”.
The Grace Christian Women’s Soccer squad now set their eyes on the NCCAA Mideast Regional Final. The location has been changed to Lowell,MI. Originally, the tournament was set to take place in Mt. Hope, WV, and later got switched to Kentucky. After finding out only Grace Christian & Great Lakes would be competing in the regional, they were able to agree on a neutral site for a regional final match-up. Now set for Nov. 1st @4pm.
