We shut down Wake Forest, and our defenders did a great job in the second half. Overall, we have been playing well in the last few matches, but we could not get the result. I am happy with the way we played today and the way we believed in ourselves. Our players deserved a great win like this after working so hard. They never gave up, and they are still working hard.”
