On the game:

“Over the course of the 90 minutes, I think we did really well. We again, created more chances at the opposition. From start to finish we dominated and it looked like we were you know the better team I would say. At the same time we weren’t ruthless enough in front of goal. Very happy with the goal we scored from that set piece that we worked on. Very disappointed on the way that we conceded that goal. That was obviously a mistake but when a player makes a mistake we all do it. It’s the same that when we scored a goal we only score. It’s just part of the game but we need to make sure that doesn’t happen at the back. We need to punish teams. The chances that we are creating I think we should have won that game but at the same time it’s a point. A direct opposition in the fight for playoffs that we don’t get three but we get another one. There has been some teams winning some teams losing so adding points to the board is always positive. We got to the 30 mark and now let’s get 33 on next Sunday.”

On where her goal stands in her career:

“If we’re talking about the looks of it’s probably one of my top goals. I’m not really known for scoring a lot. I’m a more of an assisting player it was it was awesome to see the replay on that. It just feels good to be able to help the team in in that way.”

On what the players were saying to each other at the final whistle:

“I think there was a little bit of disappointment there. We knew that we should have had the three points. We let some points slip away and at this point in the season we really need to keep pushing. We were trying to treat this game like a final and treat these last four games like a final because that’s what it’s going to take to make the playoffs and so obviously not getting the three points and having the majority of the better opportunities it’s a little disappointing but what I love about this team is that we are going to go to work again and we are going to work on that this week at training and we are going to make strides and we are going to continue to improve and we have so much potential and we are going to just keep growing.”
