STAT OF THE GAME I
10 – SEU’s 10 corner kicks doubled the Roadrunners’ five, and it was the 10th from Jenna Lipscomb that led to Morgan Palmer’s game winner.
SEU Head Coach Nick Cowell on the win over MSU Denver
“Obviously, Metro is a very strong team; they’re coming off of a win against Dallas Baptist up there last Thursday. So, we knew that they would be a real handful, and they play a very hard style to play against. They put a lot of players behind the ball and try to catch you on the counter attack with their speed. We knew that they didn’t have many subs so, you know they were tired from Thursday night. I thought going into overtime today we had the superior fitness, we have better depth on our team and I think that kind of is the thing that showed in the end as we still had energy at the end.”
Cowell on Palmer’s heroics …
“Morgan’s a player for us that’s really coming along in terms of the fitness level that she brings. She’s always the one who runs the most during games. She has the highest intensity levels of any one of our players, breaks up a lot of plays defensively and I’m really happy for her that she’s started to show up on the offensive side of things today.”
