continued Regardless of the talent, Morency said this week his squad still faces a formidable challenge in 2013.
“The team must improve defensively, individually and collectively, so that we can use our energy to press the ball all over the field to force turnovers and feed our attack,” he said. “Second-year goalkeeper Andi Pfau must make the necessary saves that will keep her team in close games. And we need as many players as possible contributing to our goal-scoring efforts so that the responsibility doesn’t fall solely on Olivia.”
Defensively, Bolton will be led by returning starters Kim Wright, a second-team league All Star; Lindsay Markham; Olivia Clesceri; first year player Madelyn Pratt as well as Pfau. Morency said Wright is a well-rounded soccer player who is a solid one-on-one defender, he said.
