Ellinger: "Obviously we're very ecstatic as far as advancing to the second round. We felt that in our opening performance against South Korea, we did everything we wanted to do. We had played against Korea in a tournament in early June in Busan, Korea, and didn't fare so well. So, having a familiar opponent, I felt, helped us in preparing for our opening match in Finland. Offensively, I didn't quite expect the explosion that we got, but we were looking for a positive result out of that and felt we played really well."
