What was said?

“I think the main key would be to stay focused on us and try to do the same performance, the same teamwork from last couple games like we did on Saturday (against Toronto). We won (that) game, but also I want to talk about the performance from the team. So I think we did a great job in first and second half. I think we got through the game, also, when we we didn’t have the ball; we didn’t concede a lot of opportunities. So it was a great game defensively and offensively, and we have to stay stay focused on us and try to keep the good things for for the next game.” – Tristan Muyumba

“It’s about staying present, not getting complacent. Whatever happened on the road before, we push that behind us and we move forward. Every game is a new opportunity for us to grow and pick up points. Whatever what happened with them (New England), I’m sure there’ll be motivated, but they’re not my group. I’m not really worried about what their their mindset is with that. It’s just about these guys here and getting our mindset to just think about what’s happening right in front of us and keep our feet where they are. And picking up as many points as we can.” – Rob Valentino
