WILFRIED NANCY

“The guys gave it their all. Again, they had to deal with unforeseen adversity that was not expected, but they were focused on the task of going for that win, and on top of that They did it without cashing in. We had to be brave, and we had to be confident. Every game is difficult, especially at this time of year. The group was mentally strong today, and that’s why we were able to bringing home victory.

Joel Waterman

“We are defending our box very well at the moment. We stay high and we are aggressive, and we do what we do in training. Our communication has also been amazing. That’s what we want to do as a defensive unit and getting two clean sheets in a row is really good.”

SAMUEL PIETTE

“We were really good defensively in the second half. We knew it would be difficult with one man down, but it’s easier to perform mentally when you know you have a two-goal lead. “We stayed tight as a unit and put good pressure on whoever had possession on their side.”
