Felicia pitched very well. She has a very deceptive delivery and we continued to hit the ball very well, said OFA Coac Meg Bartell.
I really want to credit Potsdam. They only had eight girls today and they kept playing hard.
Potsdam Coach Al Benda related that his 12-player roster will be back intact very soon.
We have two players who were just cleared to return from injury today and we have another player who had another commitment today, said Benda.
