COACH ALVINE QUOTE
"GW does not score a lot of goals but they don't give up a lot of goals either, so coming down here and playing at their field is challenging. Apart from the penalty kick, I felt like we had some good opportunities and the better opportunities to score. It was an exciting 0-0 draw. This is the only sport where you can have a score 0-0 and have it be an exciting game. I was happy with the performance I thought we played well. On to the next one, we get to play next week and we get to play at home next week."
