Utah Head Coach Rich Manning:
"We were fortunate they missed some chances today and we were able to capitalize. We tried to rotate more today with the heat to get some rest. It looks like we didn't do it quite enough we were tired in the end. I think it had a lot to do with a tough game on Friday night."
"The team showed some character in the second half bouncing back. I'm pleased with the conviction and attitude I saw out there."
"On the second goal we had a bunch of people in the box and that's good. It's what we've been working on in practice."
"We worked hard on ending the game, and today they were more physical than our game on Friday." Credit Arizona for that. I'd like to see us sustain our spurts a little better."
Ashley Mason is a tremendous player. It's her fourth year and so she's not seeing anything new. She did a great job of bouncing back off the own goal."
Utah Goalkeeper Ashley Mason:
"The goal was unfortunate. It was just a miscommunication. All you can do is think to bounce back off that goal."
"This was an awesome team effort to come back from the own goal. It was a good character builder."
