“We did a good job in the first half, balancing and keeping our spacing and defending. They are a good side. We limited chances in the first half, which we were happy with.”

“We created some chances of our own in the first half, but didn’t create so many in the second half and that was frustrating for us.”

“Giving up a goal, 6-7 minutes after the half was a bit of a bummer. Off of a penalty, a really unnecessary penalty on our part. We have to be a little bit more patient defending. Once we gave up that first goal, we had a chance to equalize it and it didn’t go in for us. It’s just how it went, unfortunately.”

“They are a good team and are going to create chances against anybody. We have to weather that storm and I think we did a good job. A lot of those shots were from distance.”
