LA Galaxy vs. Seattle Sounders: Highlights, stats and quotes

New, 3 comments

There were encouraging signs.

The rotated lineup did its job by keeping it scoreless until subs arrived with Alex Roldan making a spectacular game-saving clearance. The LA Galaxy scored against the run of play. The starters created plenty of danger and Raúl Ruidíaz grabbed a very late equalizer. Onto the next one.

POST-MATCH QUOTES & SOUNDBYTES: SOUNDERS FC 1 – LA GALAXY 1

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2020

DIGNITY HEALTH SPORTS PARK – CARSON, CALIFORNIA

SOUNDERS FC HEAD COACH BRIAN SCHMETZER – LINK TO SOUNDBYTES

On the non-penalty call:

“I haven’t seen it on the replay yet. You guys can argue it, if the referees and VAR doesn’t catch it chances are it’s not a penalty, but that doesn’t take away from [Ethan Dobbelaere], you know coming in on his left and hitting, striking the ball fairly well and trying to create a goal or a goal-scoring moment so credit to the kid.”

SOUNDERS FC MIDFIELDER ETHAN DOBBELAERE – LINK TO SOUNDBYTES

On his first start:

“It was super exciting, I found out yesterday. I tried not to think about it too much so I could get some sleep. It kind of hit me right before warm ups and all that. But then once I got out on the field, everyone’s talking to me, [Alex Roldan] is talking to me from behind from right back and he’s helping me out and so once I got out on the field I started to feel like I was fitting in and it was just fun to get out there and play.”

SOUNDERS FC DEFENDER ALEX ROLDAN – LINK TO SOUNDBYTES

On his assessment on the first game:

“I thought it was a tough game for sure, we definitely created a lot of chances, and you know, it’s frustrating to give up games like this where you’re the more dominant team and not come away with three points but at the end of the day there’s always key takeaways that we can improve on and take into the next game, but it’s just a little frustrating that we’re not able to get three points going home.”
