-- Lewisburg girls coach Jose Vega on moving Emily Cole to the midfield against Danville
"We've been working on getting the ball to the outside a lot more to open up defenses. ... It worked today."
-- Vega after his team's 3-0 win over Milton
"(Brianna Brancato) and (Korrin) Hackenberg from Danville will be the all-state girls from our league -- definitely."
-- Milton girls coach Max Campbell after the Black Panthers' loss to Selinsgrove
"Every team is a battle, I told the girls, 'These guys are spoilers; they'll spoil your season.'"
-- Craig on preparing to play a one-win Lewisburg team. Danville won 3-2
"In the beginning, we were trying to trap a lot of balls in the back and not necessarily run through and get them up and out. In the second half, the girls did a much better job of clearing it with their heads and getting it down to their body and getting it out quicker. We also started to get the ball a little more up the outside."
-- Selinsgrove girls coach Matt Metzger after his team's 4-0 win over Milton
"I think maybe we could have found the back post a little bit more. One thing we probably didn't do too well was find the keeper."
