NYRB II Forward Tom Barlow
On the first match of the year and scoring twice...It feels good, yeah. Perfect day to play, ready to get the season going. It felt good to get a couple of goals and like you said, could have had a few more but hopefully I just kind of get my misses out of the way early. But yeah it’s nice to start off the season with a win, three points and you know, just start building from there.
On if getting the first goal helped his confidence...Yeah, it's nice to see the ball hit the back of the net. It does calm me down a little bit. Yeah definitely, definitely biting my nails because I definitely wanted a few more but it is what it is. I'm just happy we got the win.
On the improved defense...Yeah, you know we always strive for our defense to keep a clean sheet, and those guys do a heck of a job. So as long as I can, you know, keep putting the ball in and doing my part we should be pretty good. But yeah, our defense is huge.
