After the game, West Seneca West head coach Jenn Bell assessed her team’s performance, “ I felt we played about 20-25 minutes of bad soccer, getting away from our game. We sat back and watched Clarence play with the ball. We played much better in the second half but Clarence, as always, was a very skilled team and were overall a little bigger and faster than us.”

Overall after the game, Clarence head coach Tom Furminger seemed pleased with his team, “I thought we had good possessions and we had a bunch of chances before we broke through. I thought we played well top to bottom we got every kid in.”
