"Malia is the hub of our wheel in the midfield. Everything stems from Malia's ability to be a playmaker in the center of the midfield. She is a good playmaking and distributing midfield player. Malia is also very dangerous in the attack. She is very powerful and has a great shot. She has worked on being able to shoot from distance with both feet. We look for Malia to start putting up more numbers offensively in our attack."
