got it to go in,” DiMaggio said.
“Carly (Ravoli) got it to Krista, who

played with a lot of energy, Emma
Witt was very solid on the right side,
and Kerrianne King also played well.
We also got a game-saving save from
Grace Witt, who stopped a shot with

know what’s going to happen the
next day. So we’ve been hopeful that
we can keep going. We’re very happy
to get a win today.”
