She added “dropping Sara Ackley to midfield and Delfina De Acevedo Ramos to defense was a perfect, and necessary, adjustment for today.”

“Sara’s speed and smart play complimented our midfield [Charlotte Hood and Katie Thorn] well enough to limit almost all of Lewiston’s offensive pressure,” said Clement. “Delfina and Gail Curtis held a strong defensive front that only allowed three shots on goal all game, a huge improvement from past games.”
