How were you able to recover from last games injury and what kind of injury was it?
“It’s my knee and it’s still pretty hurt. I think it was just the adrenaline of the game that kind of just made the pain subside for that, then after the game it was throbbing.”

What are some of the things you do before a game, to get ready, do you have any pre-game rituals?
“I don’t really have any rituals to be honest but all the girls, we just meet up and hang out for a little bit before we come out.”

What will you do to improve your game going further into the season?
”I think maybe just working more on technical work, footwork and getting my fitness up.”

How would you describe your experience playing with this particular team?
“It’s been good so far, coming from my high school team we were really close. Then coming here everybody’s pretty close and we are all like a family, so that’s nice and everyone supports everyone.”

Besides soccer what other sports do you like?
“I like football and my favorite team is the Greenbay Packers.”
