    Quotes: Charlestown coach Tammy Nuxoll, “Tonight I was very proud of our Lady Pirates. We were having difficulty with our PA system and not going to be able to do announcements or the National Anthem. Both teams collaborated and stood together alternating Lion, Pirate, Lion, Pirate and led the crowd in singing the National Anthem to honor our country. It was truly a great act of patriotism and team work. ... We were flat tonight in our match against Salem. We did not communicate very well and did not pull together as a team. Passing has been our nemesis for most of the season and that didn’t change tonight.”
