“Well, winning is hard a formula to make and even when you think you have a formula of how to win, you still may not win. There’s really no formula of how to win in this game,” stated Martinez. “There is only how well can one do certain skills, actions and accomplish certain principles to help overcome the opponent at the present time. All we can do is keep working hard and take it one game at a time.”

“You know, for us, it always comes down to that little bit of extra quality in front of the goal. The chances are there, but we just did not take them against Santa Monica the way we did against Santa Barbara,” expressed Gwin. “Perhaps the canceled practice the day before from the smoke contributed to the lack of sharpness in front of the goal. I usually work on finishing activities on those days. No excuses though, we should have put at least one of those opportunities away.”
