Outlook: It was a tough year for the Cougars a year ago after key injuries derailed a lot of the team’s top players. Early in the season, injuries are again an issue, but it appears that may clear up in time for the meat of the season. The team is young overall, and the experience the team has is in the midfield and on the back end in front of a green goalie. Mt. Blue has speed up front, and lots of youth.

Coach’s comment: “We hope to be scrappy and continue to play tough. I think we’ll definitely improve this season over where we finished last year.” — Coach Jeannine Paradis
