"Overall I was very pleased with the game and effort of our team," said head coach Chris Kouns. "I was also very pleased to today to see Angela Hulse, Heidi Dettmer, Hilary Bricken and Lavine play through injuries. Most of these girls are freshman so I was happy they batted though."

The Chanticleers (5-1) tied the game around the four-minute mark in the first half with Bobbie Parsons scoring off a junior Michelle Kimotek deflection.

The Chanticleers scored at the eight-minute mark and quashed the Dolphins offensive to earn the win.

"Coastal was well-coached today," Kouns said.

"Zwikker has a goal and four assists for the season and Lavine added her second assist of the year," commented Kouns. "It is cool to watch their success."

"We are on the track of turning the corner and playing really well," Kouns said. "The key is to stay healthy."
