Postgame Interviews With Kelley, McKeever and Velaj Following Women's Soccer's Exhibition Game Against UMass

The Quinnipiac women's soccer team's exhibition game against the University of Massachusetts on Sunday, Aug. 22 at the Quinnipiac Soccer Field ended with a scoreless tie. Both teams had several opportunities to score, but solid play in net by Quinnipiac Jillian Kelley and UMass' Emily Cota kept either team from getting on the board.

Following the game, Kelley commented on her return to the Bobcats' lineup after missing all of last season to injury she sustained during preseason workouts. Two-time NEC leading scorer and First-teamer Furtuna Velaj (Stamford, Conn.) also commented on the Bobcats first action of the 2010 season while first-year Bobcat Aine McKeever (Derry City, Ireland) commented on her first college soccer experience.
