“I called out for Megan (Reynolds), and the girls got together and said Kirsten,” Trombley said. “I have some strong leadership out there, and I let them make the call.”
Trombley said that the team controlled the game but needed a break to get into the scoring column.
“We had so many opportunities and we kept on pushing,” Trombley said. “Our defense was spectacular in the championship game. We just could not put the ball in the net until the end.”
For the Eagles, the win represented a successful defense of the state title and third overall after earning a co-championship in 2007.
