Power to the people

Area players, coaches get their say

I'm giving the power to the people this week.

Here are some comments from coaches and players which -- for one reason or another -- hadn't been seen in print.

"She's a very good defensive player, though I don't like to have her there all the time because I like to have her talent and vision in the midfield."

-- Danville girls coach Tom Craig on defender Casey Reber, who saved a goal with a header off the line in a 0-0 tie with Selinsgrove

"Jenna (Fisher)'s ball was perfect; it couldn't have been any better. And luckily, the timing for onsides was good, too."

-- Selinsgrove forward Meagan Heddings on Fisher's through ball, which led to a Heddings goal in the Seals' 4-0 win over Milton

"Playing on the turf was really tough; it wore us out."

-- Danville boys coach Brian Dressler on his team's play against Midd-West following a loss to Williamsport (on the turf at Balls Mills) the night before

"We'll be in every game. If we get a break, get a shot, or a goal, we should be able to get through (and make the playoffs)

­-- Mifflinburg boys coach Dan Gehers following a 1-0 loss to Selinsgrove

I think we could go every night and win; every night we could lose."

­-- ­­­Gehers, talking about his team's remaining HAC-I schedule

"We defended when we really, really had to. And I have to be pleased with that; it's a step in the right direction. We're focused on getting these guys to believe in themselves."

-- Midd-West boys coach Chris Sauer after his team's 0-0 tie with Danville

She's a physical presence; she's tough to shake off the ball. We needed to slow (Danville) down."
