On Wicks’ penalty save

Obviously the guy shooting is always in favor. Josh [Wicks], not only with that save, had a really fantastic day today. He really established himself as a presence when balls came in the box, and came up with some really good plays.

We didn’t create our normal chances but at least we were opportunistic when we did.
