“They’re very creative. They’re a strong squad and have had a fantastic season, so we’re taking it very seriously, ” stated Coach Wilde.

He continued, “they’re a very difficult team to beat. They don’t concede a lot of goals, and neither do we. They look like they want to attack and are very quick on the counter-attack. It has all the makings of the best game of the season”

The winner of this match will head into the final week of 2019 as the first place team going into the playoffs.
