Coming off of Rudd Field following Elon's 2-0 defeat by Northeastern, Jason Waterman felt only one emotion: anger.

Not sadness, not regret, but anger at the way he and his team played, as the Phoenix missed opportunity after opportunity and bowed out of the Colonial Athletic Association playoffs in the quarterfinal round.

"There's nothing else to it, I'm pissed," Waterman said. "That was not good enough from me and it wasn't good enough from the team. We didn't do enough of the little things. We didn't take our chances like we should have, we just didn't do what it takes."

Northeastern started hot, scoring both of their goals before halftime, putting the Phoenix down, an unusual place for the team this season.

"We dug ourselves a big hole and obviously that's unusual for us.," Elon Coach Chris Little said. "We're normally very good defensively, we're disappointed with the goals we gave up."

The fourth seeded Phoenix struggled to execute all night against the fifth seeded Huskies, controlling the ball for most of the game, but failing to convert any of their 18 shots.

"How we didn't score a goal I don't know," Little said. "Once we adjusted, we created so many opportunities that on another day we'd have scored three or four goals but it just didn't break our way today."

The loss was likely the last game of the season for Elon, but the Phoenix do have an outside shot of making the NCAA Tournament. The Phoenix will find out if they've made the field of 48 teams on Nov. 17.
