Alumnus Chad Johnson and Green Bay Glory play final game at Aldo Santaga Stadium, June 27

The Green Bay Glory women’s soccer team is 3-4 with three more games to be played in its first season of the WPSL. Head coach Chad Johnson ’93 (Sociology) has coached at nearly every level of soccer and believes the game is more competitive in this league.

“The biggest difference is the speed of play and the physicality,” Johnson said. “In this league, every player is good and you get punished for every mistake, so typically those who make less mistakes come out on top.” The Glory plays its final home game Thursday, June 27 at Aldo Santaga Stadium on the Green Bay campus.
