Head Coach Ryan Martin

Overall thoughts on team performance:
"I am proud of the guys to come into a tough place and get a point on the road.  We scored two tremendous goals, had a lot of the ball and had some very great plays. We feel excited about our progress in the past few weeks. Obviously we would have preferred 3 points and need to do a better job closing out the game but overall we are taking a lot of positives away from tonight's match.  We just need to continue to grow everyday and collect points to make a run for playoffs."

On Nelson's goal tonight:
"What a goal from Nelson and a tremendous moment for him.  That is something he has done over and over in the academy I was so excited to see it translate to the next level."

Improvements leading into next week:
"We need to continue to work out our spacing, springing in behind and getting a bit more in the attacking third. On the defensive side, being more compact and being a little more tuned in mentally in transition moments."

Captain Kyle Murphy

Overall thoughts on team performance:
"I thought the first half we did well to get the lead and see out the first half up 1-0 and then to go up 2-0 early in the second. At the same time, we have to be better to not concede and let them back into the game. We need to put together a full 90 minute performance and eliminate our mental lapses that costed us today."
