The Lady Patriots beat Manchester 4-2 in overtime for their first victory of the season.
“I could not ask for much more from my team than what they gave today,” said Lance McGregor, the first-year coach who just dodged a bath of water and ice from his players. “They did an absolutely wonderful job of coming out and competing and executing. Everyone played as a team.”
