Armon Glenn on scoring the go-ahead goal, "Coach is telling me to get onto the ball. In the first half, I missed a few opportunities and shot the ball high. Two perfect touches by my teammates set me up. I was flying down the field, looked up, and the ball was there so I just screamed it into the net."
Glenn on his second goal of the night, "I'm telling myself finish it, do something with it. My calve was starting to cramp up and I could feel it before I got the ball. But I knew I had to do it for my team to put the game away. After I scored the ball I fell to the ground and needed to come out."
Abe Tizaf on the Pomeroys first victory at home this season, "This was a great win. I'm so happy for the player's they had a good performance. Ecstatic to win our first home game. We will keep working on our final games but we will continue to improve. Thursday will be a tough game for us but we will be ready." He added, "Marcos working on the defense was the stability of our team tonight. He did a remarkable job."
