Quote Sheet

Real Salt Lake

Real Salt Lake Head Coach Jason Kreis

On giving up an early goal:

“I think it’s tough, especially because we had talked about trying to start really aggressively. I wanted to see if we could focus on that for a second week in a row, I feel like when we do that we oftentimes get a good result. We did a lot of talking about starting really well, and we didn’t get it accomplished, obviously.”

On Irwin’s save on Saborio’s penalty:

“A crucial play, of course, is the penalty kick save. Because I think it’s a pretty good shot by Sabo. He’s read it and made a great save, and that’s always going to hurt. I think if we score that goal, it happens so quickly after their first goal that the match is probably completely different. I felt like Sabo, if he scores that penalty then he probably goes on to score two or three more, because he got several clear chances and was very unlucky tonight.”
