A hop and a skip up I-95 for WPL, D2

Both sides are hitting the road this weekend, with D2 playing newly promoted Chesapeake, and WPL heading to New York to face NYRC for the first time this season. The D2 game will be followed by a developmental match, with rookies and vets alike showing off what they can do in old and new positions.

The team worked on fluency and fluidity this week, mastering the back line plays and churning out set pieces. The practices were physical–with lots of rucking, picks and punches–and so will the games.

Here’s D2’s lineup for Saturday:

  1. Brooke Branson
  2. Abbie Mocettini
  3. Jennifer Konish
  4. Nora Welsh
  5. Amanda Bauer
  6. Xa Hopkins
