Post Game Quotes
Interim Head Coach John Gall
On tonights game..
“I thought we were really good for large parts of the game and obviously in the second half the Monarchs pushed the game and I saw that we dealt with a lot of things that we needed to. And then unfortunately the set piece at the end let us down. But, you know, certainly proud of the boys for continuing to do the things we're asking them to do.”
“We talked about a tactical plan. We had an idea of what we wanted to do. I thought the boys executed things really well. They worked really hard. It's very difficult to play any team in this league on the road.”
Forward José Mulato
