Coach Falor's Comments

"As a regular central defender last season Natalie gave our backline composure, tactical awareness in transition, and solid positioning defensively. This year, we will rely on her to fill the role of wing defender so that we can utilize those traits as well as her ability to get forward. She's exceedingly fit and fast and works hard to win loose balls. She can penetrate with the ball at her feet and overall will be an invaluable key to our defense and attack."
