“The ball came over the top and it took a bad bounce. I didn’t expect it to bounce that way. I called for Tyrone [Marshall] to head it to me but it didn’t get there. I don’t know how it was a penalty. I haven’t seen the tape but it didn’t look like a penalty to me. It looked like two guys swing and kick each others’ legs and next thing you know the ball is in my hands and he signaling a foul. I don’t know what he saw. It may have been good play by the striker, but I don’t know. That was frustrating. ... But we had multiple chances at the end of the game to get something out of this. Once again, usually you would put in nine of 10 of them but it was just one of those days when it just wasn’t going to happen. And that was probably the most frustrating. We know we were better, and we should have done better.”
