On picking up a point:

“It was a game we wanted to win just like every time when we get on the pitch. I think that we dominated and I was looking at the stats inside the box, we had like fifteen shots and they had none. We should have been better in that aspect and on the ball as well. We wanted the three points but we have to keep working and we want to make it right for Gotham FC.”

On making a playoff push:

“Yeah, I mean it definitely feels incredible. Everyone has been working so hard and our goal is to make the playoffs—be the first Houston Dash team to do so. But, there is no way that we are going to let the foot off the gas pedal. So, we are really striving to break records and make history here and even though we are sitting at second place that is not where we want to be. We want to be at the top and we want to really show that we deserve to be at the top. So, yeah it’s definitely great knowing that our hard work is paying off but we still have a lot to do.”

On not getting the win:

“That’s the game of football, isn’t it? It’s not always the team that dominates and, you know, has all the chances that wins and these games are sometimes almost more frustrating to play. It’s because you feel like you should be scoring, you are dominating and it’s just that final piece that’s not coming. We did a good job of not letting frustrations creep in. But at the same time, we didn’t find a way to score a goal and that hasn’t been a problem for us in the last couple games. So we got to make sure that we don’t get frustrated or get down, but keep that confidence moving forward. So that’ll be key.”
