Sounders coach Sigi Schmid said that the Saturday night performance by Vancouver goalkeeper Brad Knighton was probably the best against his club this year.
Knighton went further, calling it his best ever: "hands down."
Here's more from Knighton:
On the result: “Obviously we’ve been waiting for that win for a long time here in Vancouver. It’s just another step in the right direction for us. I don’t care about the shutout, just as long as we win. That’s what I’m here for is to make saves, get points, and move up the table and I hope I can continue to do that.” On his performance: “That’s the best game I’ve ever played, by far, hands down. I’m motivated every game, I don’t want to be dropped from a team. It’s my job to put in performances like that to make him (Rennie) think twice about taking me out of the lineup. It’s been nice to have him (David Ousted) here because it’s going to push me and make me better and that’s what you want in any position. You want the competition in every spot and bringing David here is going to do that. What you’ve seen from the two weeks that he’s been here is that it’s changed my mentality and this is probably the best I’ve ever played.”
