“Games in the summer months in our league should not be played in the afternoon,” New England coach Bruce Arena said. “Really difficult for both teams. The heat, humidity was really challenging today. It made for a bit of a slow and sloppy game, but you know, I give their team credit. When they went down to 10 men, I thought for 15 minutes, they played very well and had advantages on us. And then I think over the last 15-20 minutes of the game, we played pretty well, and created some chances, but were sloppy with our chances and got a bit of an ugly goal, which we’re going to take. It’s an important three points on the road.”
