UCLA/Stanford Post-Match Quotes

Recap

UCLA Head Coach Adam Krikorian
"It is one of the best feelings in the world (to win an NCAA title). I'm so happy for these seniors. They are an unbelievable group of young men. They work so hard and it is about them. I wanted to win for them. That was one of the most courageous efforts I have ever coached, and maybe even seen as a sports fan. Our guys are in incredible physical condition. I worked them extremely hard for two years. It is a testament to their courage today. Joe (Axelrad) is one of the best guys I have ever known. It couldn't have happened to a better guy. He loves that challenge."

UCLA sophomore Logan Powell on his game winning goal
"It was a rebound off Josh Hewko's shot, and it landed in my hand and I knew I could put it away. We had three players ejected and I was the next guy in line to play. I was in the right place at the right time."

UCLA senior goalkeeper Joseph Axelrad
"Part of UCLA water polo is placing a huge premium on defense. Stanford played fantastic offense, but our defense was up to the challenge. I can't give enough credit to our guys. We played great defense. Tony (Azevedo) is easily the best player I have had the privilege to play against. The overtime rattled our nerves, but we were able to calm down. We knew that in overtime we were in better shape than our opponent. We couldn't be happier on the way we won. Anytime you beat Stanford you have to be happy. When we lost last weekend to Stanford (MPSF Tournament), it left an incredibly bitter taste in our mouths."

Stanford Head Coach John Vargas
"Congratulations to UCLA. UCLA did a very nice job. Clearly UCLA's focus was to stop Tony. Where we tried to post up, there were two or three players on him. UCLA is talented. They threw a lot of guys at us. We tried to control the tempo of the game, and take away their counterattack.

Stanford senior Tony Azevedo
"UCLA is a tough team and they played with a lot of heart. And so did we, and that is why it came down to overtime. Joe Axelrad (UCLA goalkeeper) is a good goalie, and he had a great game. A lot of my shots were not going where I wanted them to go."
