PERTH, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17: Josh Hill of the Eagles reacts after kicking a behind during the round eight AFL match between the West Coast Eagles and the North Melbourne Kangaroos at Patersons Stadium on May 17, 2013 in Perth, Australia.
With Christian and his speed, when those ball check up to him, and the wind is in our face, it creates more space behind him ... He’s able to take advantage of that space and that’s what he did. Defensively we were better in the second half. We won more balls, and we were organized. We didn’t have any energy in the first half.
That was huge ... Any momentum they thought they had was gone just like that. It was a good response. Sometimes when you give up goals you get down, but our kids were ready to get the ball back and go. I’m proud of these guys. That keeper played a really good game. That foot save on Josh was a big-time save. We wanted to get inside the box and get in deep before we shot.
We really thought if we could come out and score early, take the lead in the first 20 minutes, it would set the tone for the whole game ... We had a few shaky spots, but we held firm and got the win.More quotes »
