“Although the outcome was a tie, we did what we wanted in the first half coming out fast,” senior Aidan chadam said. “[Adams] scored a really nice goal to put us on the board, but to Stevenson’s credit they responded well in the second half. I’m looking forward to watching the guys play in the fall.”
