KARBOWSKI ON D'ALFONSO: "Taylor is ready for a breakthrough season. As she has battled through some injuries and increased her playing time she has displayed her great speed and dynamic play. Taylor strikes the ball very well and has shown the ability to put herself in goal scoring opportunities. As her confidence has risen the game has slowed down and she has become a very effective player on the ball."
