Postgame Quotes: Santa Clara 2, Rutgers 1
Sept. 14, 2007
Head Coach Jerry Smith, on the key to winning tonight's game:
"Once again it goes back to Brittany Klein. Tonight we made the decision to move her to holding midfielder at halftime, which helped us steady out our pace. We also added in Kendall Doherty and Jessie Baddley in the second half. Those changes opened up a lot of opportunities for us."
On Kendall Doherty:
"Kendall played really well tonight. She's one of our players who hasn't see a lot of action, but we put her in at outside back and she played some really tough defense for us."
"Missouri is an athletic and very deep team. Their depth poses a challenge for us, but a challenge that we are familiar with. It is difficult for us to come into a match against a team with a deep roster, when ours is shorter than most years and we just played a game two and half days earlier. With that said, Sunday is going to be another very tight contest."
