"I didn't have time to recruit because I was appointed the coach a month and a half ago. A lot of the guys weren't in, and now we finally have everyone and can get consistent. I finally was able to find the right-mix tonight, and you saw how it worked out: 4-0 for us."
Chaos forward Adam Arthur, who scored the team's first goal and is a veteran member of the squad, was happy to get the first win of the Ivanovic's career.
"It was great to get the first win, especially for Patsy (Ivanovic)," Arthur said. "Coming in as a new coach, we was dying to get that win for him. It was just great. We got some goals and had the spirits high."
Arthur and the team knew the importance of getting the first victory of the season.
"It was massive for us," Arthur said. "We needed a win tonight. We said that in the locker room. There was nothing else but a win. There are no more excuses. We did well and did what we came out to do."
Arthur realizes it's hard to build off the momentum of last season with no many new players on the roster, but believes the sky in the limit for the Chaos.
"This is my fifth or sixth year here and it's a different set of bodies every year," Arthur said. "It's tough to build any type of momentum. We know we have a bunch of good players and talent. We had a good year last year and are hoping to push on and do the same this year."
Arthur scored the first of three first-half goals for the Chaos in the 15th minute, followed by a goal from James Pucci in the 28th minute, and finally a 35th minute tally from Matthew Brown. Brodie Steigerwald finished the scoring with a goal in the 79th minute in the second half.
