COACH SMITH ON LAUREN: “Lauren is a very crafty and creative central midfielder. She will do well in our possession style in the middle. She plays with a lot of confidence and has shown the ability to be on the ball in the tightest of spaces. Her final pass and ability to read the game will create opportunities for herself and others. She will be a welcome addition to our attack with her ability to be a threat coming out of the midfield in addition to keeping possession and putting opponents under pressure.”
