“We struggled a little bit in the first half connecting and capitalizing on our chances, but we made a few adjustments and things began to click. I’m proud of the heart and the fight we showed tonight.” –Head Coach Erin Saleeby

Saleeby’s team will be back in action Saturday, September 24, at Bridgewater College. The Old Dominion Athletic Conference opener for the Panthers is set for a 1:00 p.m. start in Bridgewater, Virginia.
