The Lady Reds finished their pre-season tournament off with a 1-2-0 record, with a 4-0 win against Husson University, 3-1 loss to Université du Québec a Montréal (UQAM) and a 1-0 loss to Dalhousie (DAL) University.
Whitney Gallant and Eden Vanderlaan each had a goal in their game against Husson University in Bangor, Maine, with Amanda Kenny taking two of her own.
"They didn't have as much time with the ball, and everything was a bit quicker than it was on Tuesday, for sure," said Crossland.
"It's going to take us a while to get in there, I mean that's a team that's played three or four exhibitions games already and that's our second."
They were unable to take a victory in their third game against DAL, but Crossland says it is a good way to practice and finalize his roster before the season starts.
"We try to bring in good competition and DAL has been the best in our league for the past couple years, so you get a glimpse at what that looks like," said head coach Jon Crossland.
