UConn Head Coach Len Tsantiris


On the difference between the first and second half


"I would say it's a matter of being able to finish your chances, but we didn't play very well in the first half. We just make it easier for them and more difficult for us, because we didn't connect well up front, but the passes were there... But the kids played really well in the second half. We went forward, we created opportunities, and we got the goals that were needed... And this is the sixth one in a row that we haven't allowed a goal, which is a tribute to the whole team but especially the goal keepers and defenders."


Junior midfielder Samantha McGuire


General thoughts on win


"It was a big game. Obviously we're excited because we're going in against Penn State next. It'll be the second game we have against them, but we're an entirely different team, so it's exciting. This game proved a lot. We started off slow and ended up putting two goals away which is an awesome thing, so we're coming off on a high note."


What was going through her head on her goal


"I just knew I had an open shot, so I just touched it, went forward, and took the shot."


Freshman midfielder Danielle Gottwik


On the match


"I think we're becoming more cohesive as a team. We're working really well together, and we're playing our best soccer right now."


UNH Head Coach Steve Welham


On what his team was able to do well


"I think it was their spirit, they just kept fighting. The girls kept going all the way to the end. When you never give up you can create some chances at the other end. They defended very well individually, in group numbers, and as a team which is important."
