JAY LEACH, HEAD COACH

"It was really a wild second period. I think we were happy with the way we were playing. Whenever you get up big like that, for whatever reason, human nature tends to come into play. We started to relax, which is unfortunate, because it got them back in the game.

"I thought we shored it up in the third and then obviously the big goal, the seventh goal, really sealed the deal for us. We did a lot of good things and it's great to get the win."
