Coach Gallimore on Katie Johnson: "Katie had a good spring up front and if she can prove that she is a consistent threat on goal and can score some goals for us, I think that she is going to work her way into some playing time. For us, with the forwards that we have, she has to be at the top of her game and show that she can be somebody coming off of the bench to replace Tina (Frimpong) or Kim (Taylor), but I think that Katie has the attitude to do it."
