At practice on Thursday Coach Jim Rooney was asked about what the team has focused on in practice this week following a 4-2 win the the home opener:
On win versus Palm Beach Flames:
“We need to do better in closing out games. The win was an important one at home, but we can do better, we need to learn to close these games quicker than we did.”
“They are a young team, and they have had two great results so far this season, one of which was a win on the road versus the league leaders. We are going to take care of business on Saturday, we are familiar with the location, and to us, Cypress Park is our second home.”
On the team’s progression:
“We’ve had three solid wins, but now we need to really start focusing on closing out games better. Every training session is a battle and they have to fight for position. When a team has that [competition], it overall makes the entire team better.”
