Quote

“It was a hard fought game right from the start by both teams. We wanted to implement our system from the beginning, and although the Chinese were able to break through our defense at times, we held strong until the end. Each game is an important opportunity for us to improve our play, and today we took one more step forward with this win. It’s always fun to play China in China!”
