Josh Wolff hails Austin FC for 1-0 victory over CF Montreal with 10-man squad

Austin FC once again proved themselves as a true contender of the Western Conference. 

The Texas team overcame CF Montreal 1-0 on Saturday with a 67th minute goal from Maxi Urruti, despite entering the second half with a man down after Daniel Pereira received a red card just minutes before the whistle. 

Head coach Josh Wolff hailed his side for the victory, downplaying the disadvantage to credit his players. 

“I’m really, really pleased and proud of the guys [for] a tremendous effort. The first half was a little spotty, trying to get control of it, but a very needless red card again for Dani,” said Wolff. 

“That’s a couple of those – and he was frustrated and disappointed in himself afterward, right…It puts the team in a really bad spot, but the response from the guys, talking about what was going to be required at halftime, and what the willingness and commitment and togetherness was going to look like, was awesome.”
