"I was very happy with the performance all the players put in during the game and they handled the tough weather conditions extremely well," Richards said. ""It is a true testament to the lads that they are able to take on a large D1 school like Dana and still keep their unbeaten record this season.
"It was a very fast-paced and exciting game, with both teams having their opportunities to score."
Sam Stinnett scored a "great goal," Richards said, with the play of Morgan Curry creating the scoring opportunity. Alec Williams made a few big saves in goal to help preserve the tie.
"The most pleasing aspect of the game for me was seeing how disappointed the team was not to win the game," Richards said. "There is a true belief in the squad that we can compete with anyone this year and it is this confidence that will be key to our success this season. The senior players on the team are a huge reason for this and have taken on their leadership roles very well."
