Coach Bigg's Comments

"I thought more and, more of our spirit and personality came out as we moved into the later stages of each half, and we created some of the best scoring chances we've had all season.  We fought hard to the very end to get back into the game, and the confidence and speed we showed in and around their penalty box and that resulted in our goal was a glimpse of the kind of attacking we're capable of in the future".
