REAL SALT LAKE HEAD COACH JASON KREIS
Thoughts on the match: “I'm really pleased with the performance the guys put in to the first half. A lot of hard work and determination and grit on our part to try and get a result on the road. It's been quite a few games now since we've done that.”
GK NICK RIMANDO
Thoughts on the match: “I thought we played pretty good. The first half we came out and shut them down. Not really creating a lot of chances but we kept the ball and that's something that we talked about coming into this game. Second half I think we did ok, but then a misclearance led to their goal and after that we were pretty much left chasing the game a little bit. Didn't possess the ball really well after that and I think that's hwo they got down, countered and then Dane got their second.”

Thoughts on the match: “There wasn't too much between both teams and we got a bit unlucky with the first goal but it was still early. Then Richards took a half chance and scored a really good goal and left us playing catch up really trying to get back in it. We got the goal a bit too late and then just ran out of time.”
