"Our jerseys are really cool and I think that it’s really cool that we wear the same ones, the men’s and women’s team both wear the same ones. I’m really kind of into that. Maybe like each team can have kind of a special, you know, addition of their own but I feel like they’re kind of getting a lock on it."

"When you look around at our locker room and see the squad that we have you know I think to not win it at the end is unfortunate and to know that we won the shield. Best team in the league during the regular season but you know I think this club also has a long-term goal as well. Not just about this year, we have a future we’re looking forward to. We can kind of keep the foundation and keep going from there."

"They’re a fantastic team. I feel like the two best teams are in the final. Been 1, 2 all year basically and style of play, how strong we’ve been from top to bottom, both teams. They kind of like to play the same way we do. They like to have the ball and feel uncomfortable when they don’t have the ball so we’ll try to disrupt that. I’m sure they’ll try and do the same but hopefully we’ll have some kind of home-field advantage which will help. Although, they’ve played in like 160 degrees so we turned it down a little bit for them."
