COACH RUDY ON ROMANO: "We added a lot of different types of front players to our mix. Maura is more of a target player, come back to the ball whereas Natlie Muka is one of those who wants the ball played through so she can run to the goal [like Britt Canfield]. She's got a wonderful left foot, very accurate. She missed her senior year of high school with a broken ankle suffered near the start of her season. But she's rehabbed well and we expect to see some great things from her"
