 Steve Cogley - “That's exactly what we expected. We expected close games this weekend. The No. 1 seed all the way down to the No. 7 seed played tight games this season. We tied them (R.C. Central) 2-2 earlier this season. Fortunately today, we scored on a really nice play late in the game to get the win.”
 Steve Cogley - “The guys are extremely excited. Everybody who follows high school soccer in South Dakota knows about how big of a rivalry we have with Pierre. Two years ago we beat them in the state championship game in Aberdeen. Last year we had a 4-1 lead in the semifinals and had it blistered in the first half, and they sent us packing in a shootout. So any time we beat Pierre in a big game, it's exciting for our players.”
 Steve Cogley - “I was very disappointed with our effort. This was a team we should have beaten. We ran out of gas. We need to step up more.

 Steve Cogley - “They were shots from quite a distance away which our goalie was tracking.

I was very encouraged with how we looked.”
 Steve Cogley - “The guys were exhausted but you could tell they were happy. We really had to fight some adversity, but we were able to pull it out. That's not easy to do when you're tired.”
