She scored her first two goals of the season, after returning to play in late October from an upper body injury that had her sidelined for three months. Marley’s compete level was elevated to a degree that her coaches hadn’t seen last season. She consistently embodied PTL’s core values—respect, resilient, and relentless—throughout the weekend.
