KARBOWSKI ON CONNORS:"Kristen is a very intelligent and savvy player, she has a great understanding of time and space and makes great decisions on and off the ball. Her athletic ability and competitiveness always have her in the right spot to impact the game. Kristen will play a role in the midfield or as a striker that will allow her to impact the team in possession, linking up passes and providing quality decisions going forward in the offensive third and around the goal."
