Brandi Fontaine: It was a great win for the team today. I think we needed this for our confidence to continue rolling. Happy for our seniors, very glad that Lauren Mazich was able to get a couple of goals on her senior day, and also for Chloe and Juliette to put in a performance like they always do. I’m really proud of them and was really excited to honor them and think the team honored them well.
