SANTA BARBARA -
Head Coach Kevin Grimes:
"I certainly credit UC Santa Barbara an awful lot for coming back from two goals down and tying the match. We were very happy with our performance overall tonight. I think both teams played great"
"I don't think we focused on trying to disrupt their goalkeeper from backpasses. The conditions were just very difficult tonight so the randomness of some bounces and some slippery touches were probably going to be a lot more than a regular game with dry weather. I think that was it more than any kind of tactical move on our part"
Sophomore Forward Andrew Wiedeman:
On the game-winning goal:
"I don't really know what happened. Slippery surface with the ball bouncing around, took a knock off someone and it came straight to me"
Junior Goalkeeper Stefan Frei:
On the save with three seconds left in regulation:
"I knew that it was really slippery and our coach said that anything can happen with a slippery surface. My gloves were slippery so it was right around my fingertips and I had to curl around and hold on to it, so that was the one that scared me for sure with 3 seconds left"
