    Post Match Quotes

    Martin Rennie:

    “I haven’t seen that before,

    “If you’re in doubt, usually, you don’t give a goal, and there was obviously some doubt.

    “It was a key moment in the game,” Rennie said. “But we’re not blaming the referee. We have to be good enough to overcome that.”

    Brad Knighton:

    “I don’t think we played as well in the second half as we would have liked to,

    “We were too open, at times. A team like L.A. is going to take advantage of that, and they sure did.”
