The -- -- coming to -- Jeff causing. His 99 degrees Therese played on Wednesday that he didn't hit it a bit of a slump. And they're playing a team that came into the weekend top of the table although New York LeapFrog them on earlier in the afternoon. Good result even -- the -- are you frustrated you get three. Bethlehem and they -- walking away with a point on the road like you say in the heat. Tough place to play him this was impressive crowd impressive place to play -- it came out they did well great job defensively walk away at the point. Our sovereign bank man of the match joins us not to the revolution locker room lying guy Ryan. I'd talk about the conditions and and the battle you guys have to do over ninety minutes plus. You know it's difficult to talk about because both teams had to deal with with the heat. But it's true it's very hot today. Fortunately coming in gets two great atmosphere. You tend to forget about it is -- equal on the pitch. But he certainly -- -- Probably you know. Ryan tell us about that second shot you had that diving header I think it's and it's right on line how well his is great ball from me. In this this week who worked with the pieces in. Now is ready for it and I lined it up and it doesn't as the difficult ones you know I thought it was in the fourth and -- Unfortunately in college and that's the -- As is very close Ryan replays for more angles -- conclusive but in any case it doesn't matter because that's the periphery. And they -- decision it's final. You have to be adaptable in the flow of the match am I correct in saying you play three different positions in the course of this game it's true I did I did in. Appreciate their confidence in -- that. I think. I'm open helped the team in that sense you know we had a few guys -- down in we need to be adaptable to nine. You know from from from one what was -- fourteen. We're today. Good performance good result thanks for joining us Ryan man of the match right guy thanks guys. So useful to have a guy like that not just with his athletic ability and his experience -- just that. Composure you can hear in the way he talks he's a mature player and a leader out there terrific slot guy for Jacobs Field in certain talk. Multiple positions and different difficult situation. Special -- -- has the experience of playing overseas playing in Ireland playing here. He's utility guy Jays use them all over the place like is that within three spots within one game it is like a -- he's good -- you know a lot Jack of all trades. And he's dominant some positions and it's a good guy to have. From me like he -- from position one of fourteen to deal you lies in games like this. Part that coach joins us now from outside the locker room -- At a different level sharpness and against Montreal absolutely that we're. We're just point in the game in Montreal and and I it's always about not getting back to basics and -- -- and trying to to make it difficult against them. And we had a game plan that was was was designed to get 00 at halftime and then try to take the game and thought we traded a couple chances in certainly -- there really awesome tacky team so we had defending me to defend well. To you set up play you know with with five -- -- trying to overlook that midfield what you think you said you did a great job defensively it's got to be good. You want three point but the walk went to shut out in a point it's pretty good. Yeah and and you know hopefully. You know this is a good step for us -- it. Fortunately we've we've gone against thinking that we can just passes through everybody in the game what time we got back to the basics it was. It was a good hard fought match for us than. -- -- these the kind of games where you can use as a stepping stones and what that's they defend. Now we match that was the way we play we play well. We're going to be it's hard today good result safe travels on thanks for the obvious was it that you guys on you know ask the question right I was actually going to be a -- if Mac can play it out and what was his.

I want a sense of relief but it -- sense of accomplishment for both guy and heaps and those interviews are proud of the result even though wasn't entirely satisfied. -- that he gets good word pride is there there. You know do they want it -- what the three points but -- -- like it that -- they earned it. It definitely on that point they're OK with that like. One of the top teams in the league period that come okay you know what that could shut out a good point and walk into next week. In Philly and. Try to go for three there and they showed the team character that reflects that kind of mentality change once and he showed that they really were attacking from the -- the first half as we look at the highlights the reds are trying to make nine financiers -- they had some chances in the first half. And early on it was -- guy with a terrific. Breakthrough and -- It was by the keeper Jimmy Nielsen. Great ready for the great ball through -- of them haven't but you know ahead from twenty yards out does well. And he turned back around his diving header right in the goal and just a great job -- that back full. The great diving header by him with a power. We'll never know there's all the way over the line or not the reds have more good attacking play -- wrote rookie. Cutting it back to Nielsen was there to knock it down Sean Jones very -- It was he was in the back in the midfield up front. Again that's his game gets involved he's a big body in the middle could present quite showering. -- game the first out but Jacob Peterson. Nearly nearly got there afraid that it during the game you can't let those balls drop especially. You know 1940 yards out front of the home. Move into the second half. They -- here by now.
