COACH DREYER QUOTE
"As a staff, we couldn't be more proud of this group. McMurry took the lead in an unlucky set piece goal. We regrouped at halftime, made a couple of adjustments and came out eager to get the win. CJ Burns capitalized on two great opportunities. Today was a whole team effort to come back from a 1-0 deficit."
