“They’ve been very consistent all year and that’s a good indicator of a special team,” Tabet said. “It’s very exciting to have a young team like this that’s eager to play at a high level. I’m very happy with the way they show up, day-in and day-out. Our expectations for this match are the same as they have been all year.”
