However, an excellent second period from United, that included goals from Lauren James and Christen Press, meant Casey was feeling much more upbeat after the final whistle.
“I think it was definitely a game of two halves,”
she told club media.
“First half, we weren’t good enough, but the players knew that, I knew that.
“We needed to make a few tweaks: move the ball quicker, play as a collective. We didn’t do that in the first half, but I have to say the response after half-time was really good.
