"It was another good conference win. We got everybody into the match for a lot of minutes," commented Denison-Schleswig coach Carlos Trevino.

"Defensively, we had a couple of breakdowns in each half, but we had a non-keeper save to prevent a goal and we got a great diving save from Lopez on a penalty kick," he added.
