Quotes from Santa Clara - Portland Match

Recap |  Final Stats

Head coach Cameron Rast, on game: "Today was one of our best overall performances of the year. We moved the ball really well and dictated the play pretty well. In the second half we really started to get in behind them and we were rewarded for that. I am happy with our play today."

Rast, on play of goalkeeper Joseph Buttitta: "Joe has been excellent the past few games for us. He made some big saves for us Friday to preserve that tie and again today he kept us in the lead with his play in the second half. We feel very confident with him back there right now."

Freshman Sean Danzeiser, on goal: "I got a nice ball through and I saw the goalkeeper starting to come. I thought that I should just try it and I was able to chip it over him and into the net. I was happy when it hit the back of the net."

Danzeiser, on team's play: "We moved the ball very well today and we were trying to break them down all game. The midfield did a great job at getting everyone involved and keeping the ball flowing. We were able to spread them out and get some good attacks going. Overall, we are very happy to get a win here and head home."
