“That’s why we brought (José Escalante) in. He’s an exciting player. He’s one that fans will pay their money to come and watch. He had a good day out there. Credit Valour stopped him as often as they could. He’s got a wand of left foot.” – Tommy Wheeldon Jr., Cavalry FC head coach

“We want to make Spruce Meadows our fortress. Getting two wins from two is a good place to start for us obviously. Defensively, I think, we’ve been solid. It’s what we pride ourselves on. Getting our first clean sheet tonight feels very good. But, now it’s a matter of building off of this.” – Marco Carducci, Cavalry FC goalkeeper

“Should have equalized about a minute later. I loved how we responded to the goal. And Marco (Carducci) robbed his old mate Ali (Musse) couple times today as well with some good saves.” – Rob Gale, Valour FC head coach
