Southampton Academy Raider head coach Chris Pope said after the game, “We got outplayed and couldn’t hit a shot. They shot the ball well in the first half. I thought that if we could have made some shots in the first half it would have been a much closer game. The second half we were already — I wouldn’t say out of it, you are never out of it — but we didn’t shoot the ball any better the second half.”
