On the positives from Saturday’s game:

“We played a team that is on top of our conference, in their place, and we were toe-to-toe. It was an even game, we minimized (Minnesota MF Emanuel) Reynoso on the ball and minimized their chances offensively. We had a couple of good opportunities, we scored a great goal through (FW) Corey (Baird). It’s frustrating because we did enough to come here and get the three points and to lose in the last 10 minutes, it’s frustrating, especially in the way that we conceded the goals. Mental errors are costing us, they are really costing us.”

On the team’s struggles to win:

“I think everyone just has to look internally, myself included. Everyone just has to look internally and figure out ways that we can get better, individually and as a collective. Me personally, just look inward and figure out what more I can do in that game. The whole team needs to be doing that and I think that is something that we can do to help get us over the finish line.”
