Coach Mallia on Aviles: “When watching Emma play the first thing you notice are her sound technical skills. She has an excellent first touch, she can play all kinds of passes and she strikes a quality ball on goal. She’s also left-footed, which is always an added benefit. She comes to us from Pipeline, a club that puts a strong emphasis on development. Emma is a great addition to our class, and we are excited to get her to campus.”
