“We’re going to see this team again. We don’t take this lightly—we’re going to use this as motivation.” —Angela Ribarich, Gee-Gees centre.

“Truly devastated that this dream season has come to an abrupt end. Our players stayed true to themselves by fighting till the very end. We have great young men and a dedicated staff that deserved better. But that’s sports.” —Patrick Grandmaitre, Gee-Gees head men’s hockey coach.

“It was a game that had a lot on the line, and we did have a high stress level. But you can tell with our press offence that our seniors were struggling with the ball at the end, but a learning experience will be better next time.’’ —Andy Sparks, Gee-Gees head women’s basketball coach.

“We want to make sure that we can win that first game. In this type of playoff format, it’s not like a best of seven where you have a few games to come back.” —Mathieu Newcomb, Gee-Gees forward.

“Usually in the playoffs, what it comes down to is good teamwork, special teams, and goaltending. I know we have good teamwork and good goaltending, but special teams are something you’ve constantly got to work on.” —Patrick Grandmaitre, Gee-Gees head men’s hockey coach.
