What They Said
“We haven’t done anything specific to the backline. We have done some things specific with the whole 11 unit. Our lines are closer together. We have each other’s back. It’s mentality rather than anything else. These girls know how to defend. They know good shape. They know crap shape.”–Sky Blue FC game day coach Dave Hodgson on an improved defensive effort
“She’s just a very, very special person. She’s a fantastic footballer, but she’s a 10-times better person. She’s obviously our co-captain now, and she’s what our girls have been craving for. A leader on the field. A leader off the field. A leader in the locker room.” –Sky Blue FC game day coach Dave Hodgson on Sam Kerr
Story lines to follow
Here are some story lines we’ll be following during Week 19:
-Sam Kerr has 4 games to score 1 goal to break the NWSL record and 3 to tie the U.S. WoSoPro record for goals in a season
