in the first half

“I’ve been training there all preseason so it was just good to finally get a goal and the combinations will come,” he said. “We worked hard on that and that will come with more games.

“Now we’ve got this out of the way that we’re building for the first round, and the excitement grows from there

“I was pretty excited to play tonight. We did so much work preseason that I was pretty confident of what we were doing. I just wanted to go out and find my rhythm”
