“It’s disappointing to lose any football game. I’m very happy with our players and how hard they played. The US is a formidable opponent and we knew we’d have our hands full. We were happy to make a few plays… we made a couple of turnovers and were able to score a few points which has been rare in the past against the US. I’m just really proud of our team and how hard we fought in the game. Like I said (the US) is talented and they’re deep. Any team that plays them has their hands full.”

On the US seizing momentum after Canada closed the first half with a touchdown

“They’re (the US is) a very balanced team so depending on what kind of situations we’re in defensively, they can run the ball and they can throw the ball. They came out fired up in the second half after we finished off the first half with a big play and ran the ball down the field. That’s the sign of a good team and a well coached team – they took what we were giving them.”

–          Jeff Yausie, Canada head coach

On Canada’s first half surge

“Canada did a good job. They jumped on us when we made mistakes and that happened multiple times. The muffed punt and obviously at the end of the half, not understanding down and distance with 19 seconds left (in the half) and eyes in the backfield. They’re a good team and every time that we were undisciplined or we got out alignment assignment football, they took advantage of it. Canada is on the rise and they’re a great program and very well coached. Their players gave us everything that we could handle… very good team effort by Team Canada. 

–          Jim Farrell, USA head coach
