Head Coach Arthur Salazar commented on the win saying, "I'm very pleased with the way the team responded to going down 1-0 late in the game. The resilience they showed to battle back is something we struggled with, so to see it from such a young group is good. We are looking forward to another hard-fought game against USW tomorrow."
