The team rested in California until Tuesday, when it moved to Seattle for the first leg of the playoffs.
"I'm not worried about their fitness, I'm worried about how many games they've played," the coach said. "Now we're playing on Thursday and the league didn't take into account that we played in CONCACAF on Wednesday. It's unfair Ray Ban Warrior."

“We are not putting our head down.”
