Goalkeeper Colin Miller

On overall thoughts:
“It was awesome to get a point on the road, especially for the group to come together fully on the field for the first time. It was a collective effort and was really great to see everyone work as well together as we were hoping.”

“It was really great to see the fans travel up to Philly with us. The Stampede were in our corner for the full 90 minutes supporting us. We can’t wait to get back to Segra Field and play in front of them again.”

On first shutout:
“I am excited for another milestone with the team. It was a collective effort, I am only one guy out of eleven. The guys out there made me look good and made the team look good. We were able to defend first and attack later, it worked really well for us.” 

Looking ahead to Atlanta:
“We will have a few days off and a bye next weekend, give us time to prepare for the match against Atlanta. We are on the road for the first six matches, it will be tough but we have the right mentality going into this stretch.”

Head Coach Ryan Martin

Overall thoughts:
“After a long preseason, and first match on the road, we are happy with the shut out for sure. There were some really good individual performances, collectively we are still working on connecting better on the field, which is expected after the first match. To be on the road against an MLS 2 team, in very cold conditions and to get a shut out, we are starting off well and heading the direction we want to go this year.”

On team chemistry: 
“The team has come together so fast. They go out to eat together, hangout, and get along so well already. That’s what travel will do as well, I am looking forward to being on the road as a group for the first few matches, it can only bond the team even more. We will continue to grow, but there is enough already out there, we come away really encouraged.”
