Neufang split his time between close defense and LSM. Whatever position he was at he did a nice job of creating chaos for his team. He didn’t have trouble guarding fast players or big players, showing his versatility. On one play he caused a turnover with a takeaway check, scooped the groundball and outletted the ball to a breaking midfielder for a goal. He also had success in the riding game, picking off a pass on an opponent's attempted clear and creating some offense for his Orange Crush team.

Offensively, the biggest goal for us is having players understand that we want them to be dynamic and create opportunities for ourselves and/or others, while also playing within the system that we play. Sometimes, that's challenging. They want to do just what we ask them to do and then they're not as dynamic, so we want to balance those two things on the offensive end. We don't want to take away the natural abilities of any of them, like a Kayla Treanor or Michelle Tumolo.
