“Tonight was our first game of the season and I was very proud of how hard and tough our kids payed. Unfortunately we came up a little short, getting beat 1-0 to a good Shinnston team,” said Sturm.
“We had many shots on goal but tonight was one of those nights where the ball just wouldn’t find the net. This is a great and talented group of kids. I’m very excited about this season with this team, it’s going to be a successful one,” she added.
The Crews keeper Kaiden Lafferty, stopped many goals from passing by his grip except one in the first half, which was the one and only goal of the game.
