Head coach, Cheryl Smith, said: “This was a very useful game to get ourselves prepared for the weekend.

“The coaching staff saw a lot of positives and obviously there are still things we can work on. It was great to score some goals and get a shut-out, but it was also important to see how the girls stuck to the game plan.

“We now go into the weekend tournament in good spirits and look forward to playing some quality opposition.”
