WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

"Practice has to start where we left off [against Montreal last week]. We clean up the unforced errors, and we have a shot to win two next week. We can't take a step back then try to figure it out in the match next weekend. That's gotta be step one. We need to build on that next week, be a better team next weekend, and we'll be fine." — Lionel Woods, head coach
