“We have a tired group for sure. We knew today was going to be a grind and it was. We’ve been in tight games all week and we knew we needed to elevate our game to the next level, today we did that, and it helped get us the win.”
- Sara Stewart (Northern Selects) on playing with a short bench due to injuries.
“It doesn’t matter how we got here and now we’re in it just like everyone else. The girls in that room are hungry and we came here to win. We can’t soak this in for too long, we have to get right back to work here and finish the right way.”
- Sophia Zuck (Prince Albert Bears) on the Bears’ mindset after back-to-back victories.
“As a group we are happy with the win tonight. This was a hard-fought, tight game and we played well. We are a confident group right now and the mood is high heading into tomorrow.”
- Zoe Ziotas (Durham West Lightning) on the confidence in the Lightning locker room.
