Sounders: One point? Or two lost points?

Here's a sampling of postgame, provided by the Sounders:

Sigi Schmid (On the result . . .) “Giving up a goal at the last second like that, we’re not happy with that. We could have walked away with three points. It was something we worked hard for and I don’t think we played super well. We found ourselves in the lead. It’s a criminal mistake at the end of the game and we can’t make a mistake like that.”

(On the draw . . .) “Getting a point on the road is still something. We ended up not coming away with nothing but we had three points so we gave two away. We had some opportunities where we were very close to breaking it open, but we have to do things better on the possession side of the ball.”

Steve Zakuani – Sounders FC Midfielder(On his 11th minute goal . . .) “It was just a counter-attack. [Fredy] Montero had the ball on the right. I had a lot of space on the left so I made a run and my first touch was good. I saw [Nick] Rimando coming out so I tried to just slide it past him. He got a little lucky because he got a touch on it, but the ball went in the goal so I was happy with it.”

(On the result . . .) “It was bad. We were within 30 seconds of coming away with three points. It was disappointing. It feels almost like a loss. I think for the effort we gave, we played well for 90 minutes and we fell asleep twice and we got punished.”

Kasey Keller – Sounders FC Goalkeeper(On the result . . .) “Anytime you’re winning with 30 seconds left and you concede a goal it’s disappointing. It’s about finishing games off and today we weren’t able to do it.”

(On only gaining one point from last two contests . . .) “It’s a little frustrating. We could be at seven points right now but we find ourselves at four and there’s a long time to go. We’re still trying to find the way that works best for us and I’m confident that in the next few weeks things will be clicking.”

Jason Kreis – Real Salt Lake Head Coach(On the match . . .) “I’m obviously pleased with our team, going down twice in a match and reacting the way we did. It’s an extremely positive thing for us and to get that goal, it felt like a just reward.”
