The Bulldogs lost to powerful Divine Savior Holy Angels, 7-0, on May 20, but head coach Shondell Hernandez was pleased with the effort.

"We probably played one of our best games ever," he said. "Erminia Garcia had a chance to score but missed a one-on-one shot inches wide of the post. Emily Starich and Thea Wisniewski had their best games ever on defense.

"Goalkeeper Karina Chavez made some huge saves to prevent the mercy rule for the first time ever against DSHA."
