It was one of the most intense games of our season and everyone wanted to finish with a win as a senior. We didn't just play Harvard, we tried to play with tempo, play with tempo and touch and test them until we ran out of steam. Nothing feels better than concentrating on passing, being creative with the ball and getting the "W" at the end of the day. I love seeing the seniors so happy at this time and to be able to finish the season with this win. It felt like we were playing in our last home game of the season and it was a great opportunity to walk through the shop and finish it off.
