“Kellie had a tremendous opening weekend for us. She was dominant on both ends of the floor. Kellie’s versatility allows for her to be a force both inside and out. She is playing with great confidence and poise. She sets a great example for our young team.” – Pat Manning, Head Coach

“He really stepped up his game. Jonathan has been very good all year. He’s very versatile, and this past weekend we used him in a holding midfielder role. He was the man of the match on Sunday with two goals. He just took the game into his own hands. He did everything.” – Mike Russo, Head Coach

Westling scored the men’s first and fourth goals in the 4-1 victory over Western New England on Sunday. His first strike came off a header in the 64th minute, and it leveled the score at 1-1. His second goal of the game helped punctuate the men’s win. On the day, he took six shots and was at the heart of many Eph attacks. Westling also contributed in the men’s 4-0 victory over Elms, scoring a goal in that match as well. His goal in this game also came off a header.
