Midfielder Charlie Wehan

On his first professional goal:

“It felt great. It’s kind of a blur, it just kind of happened. It’s natural. I’ve been knocking on the door the last several weeks and I’m glad to finally get it in.”

On the match result:

“Huge result. We went down 1-0, then down 2-1, so coming back 3-2 and never giving up, working hard, we couldn’t ask for more.”

Forward Max Mata

On the equalizer:

“As soon as I knew I was coming in, I was obviously excited. It has been a while since I have had any significant minutes, that was a big positive for me. I just wanted to come in and promise myself that I was going to give everything and I did. I was lucky enough to find myself in the right place at the right time to score a goal.”

On the match:

“It wasn’t that great of a match in the first half, to be honest. We made two subs at the half and it definitely got better. As the game went on I think we had a little bit of luck on our side, but we also played with a lot of grit to earn this win.”
