"It's a big disappointment because we didn't fight. We had no intensity in the game. We were mentally and physically tired. I didn't recognize my team tonight."
GONNEN, ROBERT
Swans Gmunden
"I didn’t expect a game like that. We played a very good defense. In the first half, every shoot we took got in. It was a shooting evening. We don't have the best players but we had a good team spirit."
