In their inital pre season game, the Courage shutout the college powerhouse 2-0 with a pair of goals coming from Darian Jenkins. Between the pipes, the time was split between Sabrina D'Angelo & Katelyn Rowland. The assists were contributed by Meredith Speck & Debinha. Jenkins is a returning player but saw no time due to an ankle injury last year after being drafted #8 in the 2017 draft. Coach Paul Riley of NC felt it a strong begining for the year with some fitness issues, yet more than pleased with the work and want of the players. Early games with top opponents such as this help prep for the coming season. A great starting point was achived and to build from it.
