Quotes out of the Fire Camp after the 2-3 Loss @ Portland

By Sean McCaffery, August 15, 2019

The Fire have not been hot away from home but at least at this game there was smoke.

HC Paunovic and his thoughts. " We didn't start well. We had a poor start. But, after conceding two goals, I think the reaction was appropriate. We never crumbled, we fought until the end. Playing one man down, it's always a big test. We scored two goals wth one man down for most of the time playing like that. Obviously we are not happy with the result. I think we are on a good path. I think locker room is strong and believes in our possibliities to reach the playoffs."

The positive takeways from the game by Coach. "We know very welll that we are not the best team in the league. The third goal if that didn't happen I think that we would have tied the game anyways."

Forward Sapong and his thoughts on the game. "I think we started off well. Getting a red card and going down a man early makes it tough to get back into the game. We know that we're our own worst enemy. A lot of our losses are from self-inflicted wounds. We'll definitely be making a push for the playoffs."

The positive takeaways from Sapong." Well, we had two goals that realtively came out of nothing. We were putting in the work. At any given moment we cha change a game around."
