"I am very excited about the way we competed and played today. Our tough schedule certainly helped us in both matches today and will continue to help us down the road," head coach David McNamara said. "We had some guys who were struggling and needed wins to gain confidence and they got them. It is looking very good for us down the stretch and I hope we can use the momentum from today on Sunday and the rest of the season."
