The Rochester Rhinos fell 1-0 to Orlando City SC on Sunday at Sahlen's Stadium in a battle of division leaders. Check out postgame thoughts from forward Tony Donatelli and defender Troy Roberts.
Tony Donatelli -
"I think it was one of our better performances. We had possession and we were getting in behind with better chances. We just couldn't finish them. We have to stick with it and not get down on ourselves. We need more hunger in the box and I think the goals are going to come."
"They are a good team and I think we dictated the pace of the game. We took it to them a lot and they were back on their heels a little bit. They had that goal and then they sat back a little bit, which gave us a chance to win the game. Unfortunately we weren't able to get that goal but we have got to take the positives from that."
"The way we played was good. We kept possession and we dictated the game. We need to stick with it. The goals are going to come as long as we have that hunger in the box."
Troy Roberts -
"Overall we dictated a lot of the game. We had a lot of chances and we went after them. We out-shot them and pressed. They got a soft goal and it was unlucky, but even after the goal we were still pressing and trying to get the equalizer. But it was a good game. We had three games in less than a week so it is good to see us perform like this against one of the best teams in the league."
"No matter who we put on the field the overall performance has been good. We can compete with anybody and that is the main thing. We out-played them today and we want to take that and score some more goals and keep improving for the playoffs."
"They were dangerous on the counter attack. They have a lot of players that can get in behind you so you have to really be on your toes. We held them pretty well. They had a couple of chances but overall I think I was pretty happy with the total team defense and the back four communicating and defending well."
