“Our confidence is really high. I’m very proud of the team; I thought we stuck to our guns throughout the game and fought really hard. The most important thing is that at the end of the day we got three points. I thought we played really well and I’m looking forward to the next game.
“We’ve been working on crossing and finishing during training, hoping it was something we would see in the game, (Marco) Pappa delivered a great ball and I was in the right spot to put it in. I’m pretty much right where I left off last season. I want to keep it going with my teammates behind me, stay positive and work hard.”
“As a forward, it’s my job to score wherever the ball is, in the air or on the ground, I need to get to it. Pappa made a great delivery and I was right there to put it in. As to whether I’m working on headers or not, once the ball gets there I’ll use any part of my body, besides my hands, to score.”
“I couldn’t be more proud of the backline, especially the goalie. Paolo (Tornaghi) has had a rough road coming from overseas, regardless of the position he was in he stepped right in and played a spectacular game. The backline kept it strong and we got the shutout. “
“We have a lot more organization this season. Like any team that takes time, we’re a year plus into this with all of us together and the understanding has been great. We work on it every day and it’s improving every day. “
“That was his first game last week in Montreal, and the more we train together the better it’s getting. He had to make some big save today, but outside of that we’re trying to make his job as easy as possible and fit him into the team. He’s a great shot stopper and his composure is spectacular for his age, which comes from him playing for a big club in Europe. We could ask for more from him – his composure everyday in training is so laid back, he’s not nervous and that’s huge for us.”
