Huddling with Hason

  • “The Lady Lions continue to connect the dots each and every game and are striving to stay on course to the way we play. Today was our third game this week and we didn’t have to substitute until later in the game whereas technically players should have been exhausted.  Anyone watching the game can see the beautiful brand of soccer we are presenting. We must continue to be patient for the season is a marathon and not a sprint.”
