Mount View coach David Page called Wednesday’s win an “outstanding team effort.”

“After Monday's loss we had a long talk about the need to improve our defensive commitment and intensity,” he said. “We made some defensive adjustments, moved some people around and really focused on clogging up the middle and forcing them away from goal. And the girls executed it perfectly. None of the girls were happy after giving up six goals Monday and you could see and feel a whole different mindset during warmups and throughout the game.”
