Garden became animated when asked about the team’s defense.
“My defense! You know what I say, defense wins championships, and here we are in a 1-0 game, so my defense held. Defense was so key,” said Garden, noting the team honed in on fundamentals in practice since surviving its 2-1 win over Old Mill in the semifinals. “You can see how well they practiced because of how well they played today. They came up big.”
Garden praised the cool play of Kramer, the freshman wunderkind who took over the goalie role from Keller, a senior who embraced the role of backup and mentor.
“Tonight I think is the best I’ve ever seen [Kramer] play, and I am so happy for her,” said Garden. “She’s not nervous. She’s just not. She is well beyond her years in that kind of maturity. If you spoke with her, you would never think she’s a freshman.”
