"The 1-2 start was not what we were hoping for," coach John Tillman said, reflecting on the year. "But to their credit, they stuck together, everybody kind of stayed positive, and we just knew we were in a little bit of a hole, and we just kept digging one little bit at a time, not knowing what was going to happen. When you're 1-2 and not scoring goals, our offense, we were not playing very well, we just weren't. And instead of having an offense-versus-defense sort of thing, everybody just said we all need to do better. It's amazing how the year works."
