Postmatch Quotes 

Sacramento Republic FC Head Coach and Technical Director Paul Buckle

(On the match)
“We have been off for a couple of weeks in many ways, sometimes rust can set in.  You have games like this.  Like I have said before, maybe in the past we would have lost this game, it would have been a game where we would have been picked off, or where we through too many bodies forward, but we got it right.  I knew the goal would come, I had a feeling the goal was going to come, I felt that we really did control the second half.  I felt our distribution was good, we exploited the space down the left very well and I felt they got tired like I knew they would after playing Wednesday and traveling and I thought we would have to wait for the win.”

(On Jeremy Hall)
“I thought Jeremy Hall was outstanding tonight.  I asked him to step up even more.  He is having a great season and I said, look I need you to step up, I need you to lead even more.  We had a good chat on Thursday and he has stepped up.” 

Sacramento Republic FC Midfielder Hayden Partain

(On his debut)
“Once I made the dress list I was really exited, getting to put the jersey on. Coach in the 55th minute or so said he was going to put we me in, so I was excited.  I wasn’t expecting that and was grateful for the opportunity.  Going on the field, the crowd is so loud, you can’t hear a thing on the field.  It was really a surreal moment for me and I am very thankful for all of it. ”
