    What a game it was. Those women played their hearts out, Freedom too. It was so amazing to watch from the stands, what a battle, so many chances for A-Rod with Freedom’s goalie and defense denying every one ACCEPT THE WINNING GOAL. This was the first playoff game for Philadelphia, ever, let alone one that went into two overtime periods!! I hope they can be equally as hungry to win at Boston tonight! Good luck my cheesesteaks!!! You’ve made us fans so proud of you.
