Quotes:
UNBC’s Hannah Emmond


On the TWolves’ mindset heading into a crucial weekend…
“I think we just need to stick to our DNA and just play how we can. We need to come out confident, because we can win this weekend. It’s a big weekend for us to pull some points.”

On the matchup with the WolfPack…
“TRU is a big, aggressive team. They send long balls in behind defenders, so we have to make sure we are on that and getting first to the ball. They are going to come out wanting points as well, so these games are big.”


On the matchup with the Heat…
“UBCO plays like us. They like to possess the ball, and play out through the back before breaking through the midfield. I think that is why we ended up tying them last time, because we play the same.”

On seniors weekend for Kylie Erb and Madison Emmond…
“We all play for eachother, and we want them to have more than two games., so we are hoping to make playoffs. It has been a great honour to have them on our team, so it is sad to see them go.”
