Auburn head coach Karen Richter:
"I was just really proud of the effort from the team. The defense played awesome; our offense created some opportunities. Megan was big-time in goal. Our bench was huge for us too."
"Last year, we had a long bus ride home after losing in the first round to Florida State. We're excited that we're spending a few more nights in Tallahassee."
Auburn goalkeeper Megan Rivera:
"I think I played well tonight. My defense played very well; the midfielders and forwards came back and helped. It was a whole team defending tonight, not just our back four."
Central Florida assistant coach Matt Dillon:
"First off congratulations to Auburn and good luck in the next round. We are very proud of our team. Our seniors have done some great things. I'm disappointed in the game. We had some opportunities, but their keeper came up big."
