team's performance, especially after losing a goal and the way they are going in this final stretch of the regular season from the halfway point when we got all our guys back and we started to get into shape and inform us.
I think the guys have started to show what they can do and I think tonight was another good example of that and that it really doesn't matter what happened in the past. it's all of us, it's about us moving here into the future and being prepared first of all, which I think they had a great mentality within the group. I thought we were playing very well up to that point and the game opened up and I thought we were good at that too, um and then I realized that the two goals that we scored are two great goals, they are beautiful goals, but I would also say that probably we could have scored a couple more with some. of the counterattacks we had and we really defined the game, but it's good to see because there was a real intensity and aggressiveness from the group that I think was very evident tonight by Alan Polito, who won the team of the match award. day of honors for the double he scored in this game he also spoke to the media after the game this is what he said yes, I am very happy for these two roles, I think they are working for the entire team because we have together to be able to score yes yes the team doesn't work you know at the same moment then and I'm very happy but happier for the photo you know for me all the time I say I say this yes I score but The team didn't win so I'm not happy so now it's a very Good night because I scored in the team's victories.
