Coach's outlook: "The goal the kids set is to win it all this year. I think they expect it of themselves this time. Last year, they never even fathomed getting to the final game. Now, they have higher expectations."

Harford Sun outlook: The Patriots return seven starters, but most are at midfield or on the line. Bonsack is reworking her defense where sweeper Thomey should be the anchor. Goalie Dichiera is also new, so that powerhouse line will have to score big early. The schedule is not kind to the Patriots, who open with A Division powers Notre Dame Prep, Bryn Mawr and St. Paul's. However, that should prepare the Patriots for their B Division competition. Look for the Patriots to make another run at the title this year.
