Quote of the Week: 
Chicago is a good team. They’ve hit some form in recent games and they like to possess the ball. They've started to finish with a lot of possession, but the emphasis is on us. We’re at home in front of our fans and we need to put a performance together and we want nothing less than three points. We are going in the right direction to hit that playoff spot. It starts again on Sunday against Chicago and if we stick to our principles, work ethic, and execution in our finishing then I’m sure we’ll be in a good position moving forward.”
- Head Coach Seb Hines
