“(Coach) told us, ’Focus more on the runs we were making and be loud, because we’re not a very loud team. … It’s our game, we need to score goals, that’s what we need to do to win.’ And we got one in the final 46 seconds.” – Barrington junior defender Giles Phillips on coach Scott Steib’s halftime directions
