Alex Epakis

praised Brisbane Roar for their high-quality performance.

"Full credit to Brisbane,"

he said.

"They were a class above today and I think you could see what experienced players can bring to a squad.

"But in terms of my girls, I'm so proud.

"Up until the 93rd minute they were still going for it.

"It's been a quick turnaround; two games in four days after only playing three in three months has been a bit of a shock to the system, but we're building some resilience.

"I'm excited to see what we can do and what we can learn from this and hopefully we can continue to grow as a squad."
