“Our girls game against CSN is very important for seeding in the conference tournament, we could be the three seed, which helps avoid playing an extra game,” said Bennett.

Bennett said that his team will need to finish offensively and limit mistakes to be successful against CSN.

“We have to finish on our chances and we have to limit defensive mistakes that hurt us in the games we played them in Nevada,” said Bennett.

Wednesday’s game against CSN is schedule to start at 3 p.m. at the Utah State Eastern soccer field behind the BDAC.
