'I feel like I cost the team'

Telkom Knockout

Lorch missed the last spot-kick and was visibly upset when collecting the Man of the Match accolade after the game.

“To be honest I’m heartbroken you know. I feel like I cost the team. The red card killed us,” Lorch told SuperSport TV.

“But I think after the red card we managed to play well. We were not sitting back we were attacking them and we managed to get the second goal [the two goals]. Unfortunately we lost on penalties.”

Lorch went to say that it doesn’t matter whether he scored in open play but he feels he could have sent the shoot-out into sudden death and urged the Bucs fans to stick by them in this difficult period.

“It doesn’t matter. I could have done better to score a penalty for us to into sudden death. But it wasn’t to be. We worked hard you know to go to the penalties. Credit must go to all the guys, the technical team for believing in us. It was just not our day.

“I’d like to say to them they must keep on supporting us we still have three cups to play for. We’ll make them happy,” he concluded.
