It's always difficult and emotional when the season ends. You don't really realize it fully until Monday comes and there's not going to be a practice for the first Monday since August. When we look back and remember our final game of the year in the NCAA Tournament, I think we'll recognize there wasn't really that much difference between Frostburg State and a top-10 team in the country. Perhaps we can't say we went "toe to toe" with Otterbein but we absolutely had our chances to tie the game late and we felt more comfortable playing this level an opponent than we ever have in the 5 NCAA Tournaments we've played in here in my 8 years. We did have a wonderful season and have terrific players here who are highly committed to the sport of soccer and to each other. They've made their coaches, their families, and their University very proud...

In dramatic fashion, Lauren Russell slammed home a terrific shot from 20 yards in overtime to end a tense championship game and help us claim our 6th AMCC Conference Title on Saturday. Our Seniors have had a wild ride in the AMCC Tournament in recent years and they've earned the right to be called "Champions" in our last season in the AMCC. We'll find out Monday where and when we'll play in the NCAA Tournament.

Our players have remained focused on our team's objectives throughout the year and one of our primary goals is to win the AMCC Conference Championship. Being able to host the Final on Saturday in our own stadium gives us a huge boost and we hope to see lots of friends and family in attendance! The game will kickoff at 3pm and in our last year in the AMCC, we hope to leave under the best possible circumstances - with a title in hand...
