Thoughts on First Half Offensive Efforts:
“I’m really pleased. We talked a couple days ago, we talked again yesterday, and we talked before the match about how I’m really looking for improvement, about how we are starting our games, especially at home. And I think that tonight we saw that when we do that, that when we focus on getting a really positive beginning to matches it will often time lead to good things at the end of matches and good results.”
