Washington head coach Brandan Ellars spoke after the victory.

“I’m really proud of this team and their efforts. We are battling through some adversities right now. We have had a few injuries lately that have limited our numbers. It’s tough to take the field and play an 80 minute game and only have a couple of substitutions, but we are battling through. We are a very young team and have several players that this is their first time playing soccer. You add that in with the few injuries and see that we can still walk away with a win and shutout, I can be nothing but proud of this team.”
