POSTGAME REACTION: Jesse Marsch | 5/12/18

On his teams positive result tonight…

“Elevation winds up being a huge opponent whenever you come here because you never have enough time to adapt and you have to find ways to dig in and make plays. The first-half got the best of us, the fatigue got to us and then our ability to see plays, make plays off the ball and connect plays was almost impossible, so we were on our heels a bit in the first-half. In the second-half we made a formational change and I think it helped the game. We didn’t have to do so much dirty running side to side. We could lock down the wings a little more and force them to play more through the middle, which allowed us to turn over balls and go the other way. If we were a little sharper on the day we could’ve gotten more than two but it was good to get the second goal and you felt that was important because we knew they were going to throw everything at us at the end.”

On what this win means for his team’s confidence…

“I think that the group has belief in themselves and in each other. We know that we have a good group. We know that we have a group of players that can fit the way we want to play. We have good mentality and we have good leaders and I think it’s still growing into itself. I really believe we still have a long way to go to be the team that we can be. The good part is that we are finding ways to get wins and we are finding ways to manage moments. Wins on the road always feel good especially when guys had to empty the tank and give everything they had. Those always feel good and they give you momentum and that is important heading into next weekend.”
