"She has the physical ability to do it. We just need to get some training in her so .'that she starts thinking like a oalie. But she'll be alright I think as the season goes on as sh[ understands what I'm asking of her and what the expectations ar . She very smart, and picks up off things quickl g' MP's five reserves will include u~ one freshman, outside back Banks McCo three sophomores, outside back RachdMartin, out- side back Sarah B6yer, midfielder Ansley Lawson 'and one senior, outside back Hope Brooks. Hall said in order for his 2019 squad to make a deep playoffrun, it will likely first need to conquer Region 2-AAAA for the first time in eight years. "The first goal is to win region for sure" Hall said. "I think it will be us and (defending champion) Spalding again. I know they lost some players, but I'm sure they are very well-coached and know how to play. I think we're closer to them, if not more even with them, than we have been in the past. We've been dose. They had a good senior class that left last year that we just couldn't get past. Hopefully we can sneak some- thing on them this year. I don't want to lose to Howard again either. We've lost to Howard twice in the past two years, split with them both years. I don't want to do that again. That's a loss that I think we shouldn't have."

"Just the way they react to you. With my experience, the third year, everything has always usually clicked for those that have been in the system. Everything slows down. Everyone i: knows the expectations, everyone knows the system and how to play and how not to play. I think this year will be the best year un- less we get hit with injuries: Unfortunately for MP, Hall's injury fears have already been realized to some degree just as / region play begins on Friday. ' Sanders is expected to be out for two weeks with a broken finger, putting MP's goalie situatiofi in flux, while Giles, whose lineup presence is ever critical, is also expected to be out for two weeks with an ankle injury.
