“It’s been a frustrating year for all of us,” said Americans Forward Zach Pochiro. “We’re not making excuses. We just didn’t get the job done as a team. We have two home games left and our goal is to win both. Our fans have been supporting us all season despite our bad record. We owe them two wins this weekend.”
