JASON BENT - HEAD COACH, TORONTO FC II
Very exciting for the fans but a disappointing loss, what are your final thoughts on how that played out? To be honest it's a real sinking feeling. I thought we played some decent stuff with ball in regards to ball, possession, and creation of chances. Ultimately we didn't manage to keep up with the game properly. A couple minutes before halftime, we gave the ball away into the box, which we know they have some big threats, that kind of changes the mood and complexion of the game. We had some other key moments where we had the opportunity to put the dagger in and go up by 2 goals. Within a minute they were back with another goal. Some pretty huge psychological lows.
With some positives, can you talk about Tsubasa Endoh and Shaan Hundal's performance tonight? Tsubasa, for the most part every time he comes down to play a game he has the right mentality, application, he has shown his quality. Scored a couple great goals today so I thought he had a great game. Unfortunately it got to Campbell with the injury and I had to put Endoh on the right wing back to cover. I had to move him out which isn't his strength but in the end we didn't really have a solution and that took him out of the game a bit. In regards to Sean, I thought he did some great things in the second half. If I'm honest I think he could've made a couple better decisions on the counter attack, that could've possibly gotten us the two goal margin, but he showed great strength of character as he was under a lot of pressure this season. He had one goal over the last five weeks or so which is really good to pick it up. For him to finish with top scorer of seven goals, is great credit to him. Hopefully that boosts his confidence.
ROCCO ROMEO - DEFENDER, TORONTO FC II
A wild one here in the final game of the season for you guys, what are your impressions coming out of the game? Obviously it is disappointing because we ended up losing the game but I think we played a good match. We went back and forth, we had our opportunities going forward, we defended well in some areas but at the end of the day we did not put the knife in the chest.
How would you assess your individual performance tonight? I thought I had a good performance tonight - I felt I defended well in the air, defended well as a unit with my back three and my full back. Obviously there were some mistakes that I made in terms of my ball distribution and some touches but I thought I had a good performance.
Obviously Cincinnati is a very experienced team with some veteran forwards out there, could you describe the challenges you had to face? For me it would be their experience but obviously something like that gets me fired up because I want to show myself - I am only 17 going up against guys that are twice my age. I ultimately wanted to prove myself more and show that I belong on the field.
