Our Yellow Jackets could not find a goal of their own this half during with their 4 shots on goal.

After the game, sophomore Katie Settich had this to say, “Ever since the start of conference play, coach tells us we have to be “all in.” This past weekend, even though the outcome wasn’t in our favor, I truly believe we were all in. Players who made mistakes instantly turned it around. Players who do not usually step up stepped up. Wednesday is game 6 of conference play and you better believe we will be all in again!”

Defiance continues their conference play this upcoming Wednesday against Manchester! They would love the support and a good crowd. As always, wish a member of the team good luck and Go Jackets!
