What They Said

  • “We knew it was going to be a tight game but I thought for most of the second half we looked quite comfortable and we dominated a lot of the game, we just didn’t finish things off. We didn’t create enough, weren’t quite incisive enough to get in front. In this kind of game, when it’s tight, you give someone like Mallory Pugh a bit of space and time and you get punished. But up until then, I thought we were looking like the better side. That’s what this league is about. Games are tight and if you don’t stay alert for 90 minutes you get punished.” — Tom Sermanni
