As I mentioned in my last post, the Washington Spirit took on the Tar Heels of North Carolina on Saturday afternoon. If you want to hear about my weekend and the game, head on over to my last post for that story.
The nice thing about preseason games is that you learn so much about the team and what the season is going to be like. The first interview that I will share with you today is with head coach Jim Gabarra. Gabarra talks with us about his new system, where players will start this season, how the rookies are doing so far, and an injury update on Caprice Dydasco.
Next up, newly named captain Shelina Zadorsky spoke to the media about being named captain, her partnership with Whitney Church, and adjusting to the three back system.
Finally, midfielder Kristie Mewis spoke about coming to D.C., playing in a 3-5-2 system, and on leaving her hometown of Boston.
The Spirit will play on April 1 as they host the Duke Blue Devils for the third match of the preseason. Washington opens the regular season on April 15 when they welcome the North Carolina Courage to town.
Until next time,
