Coach Falor's Comments

"Sam's composure has grown steadily over the course of her career which allows her to routinely maintain possession and create quality build-ups by switching the point of attack. She links well with the backs and wide players and also is adept at serving the final penetrating pass. We will surely need her consistency in the midfield over the course of this year."
