(21:05 – 31:51) – From one coach to another as Paul Dolinsky, head-coach of the Women’s team joins the program. Dolinsky has high expectations for the current Women’s squad and believes that they got the anticipated result defeating Flint City. The team has only allowed three goals in 12 games this season which is a defensive presence that no other team in the Women’s league has been able to show. Dolinsky says the team has thought about the potential “revenge factor” facing Minnesota in the quarterfinal. Minnesota eliminated the Women’s team last year, but Dolinsky believe the revenge is more on their performance last year and letting a game slip away from them.
