Quotes :
“We heard some discussions were being had and that our game would be delayed. Our coaching staff stayed in the coaches’ room, we updated the players but we really didn’t have any timelines on the delay or how long it would be. Once the delay happened, we told our athletes there would be an opportunity for another warmup, and when we went out for the warmup, we were told both programs agreed to wear masks for the game. We told our girls to put their masks on and it was business as usual.”
- Head coach Troy Ryan (Spryfield, N.S.) on adjusting to the delay

“I think this group knows how to adapt so well, it’s just another bump in the road and we did what we could. That’s what so special about this group is the ability to make the most of the situation and adjust. I think the hardest part [in the game] was drinking water on the bench. Masks have been part of the process and our training at some point throughout COVID. We would prefer not to wear them, but at the same time we have to stay safe and that’s something we wanted to make sure we were doing, so we did what we had to do.”
- Ambrose on adjusting to wearing a mask in the game

“I was incredibly excited to get going and I had a lot of energy after warmups, so it was challenging to get the news that we were going to be delayed. But we had a lot of fun in the locker room. Honestly, with any adversity, this is the best team to be around in any situation. Once we got started, I had a lot of fun playing and to get the first win under my belt was an awesome feeling.”
- Maschmeyer on winning in her Olympic debut
