“We made some defensive adjustments at the half and keyed on Whalen, who hurt us in the first half. We played with good defensive intensity. Gillespie, Bowman and Emma Newell all played well for us, and it was good to see. Newell didn’t have any turnovers, and Gillespie was able to get out in transition.”
