POST-MATCH QUOTES & SOUNDBYTES

SOUNDERS FC HEAD COACH BRIAN SCHMETZER

On if this was a trap game for Seattle:

“On the emotional side of the guys I started tonight, I don’t think it was a trap game for them. That’s how I would answer the question. I mean guys were excited to play, guys were getting an opportunity. I thought there was a good energy in the group, the one training day we did have. Tonight before the game I thought they were ready. I wouldn’t call it a trap game.”

SOUNDERS FC GOALKEEPER STEFAN CLEVELAND

On the overall feeling after the loss:

“I think everybody is disappointed. It’s a beatable team, especially at home. Everybody wants three points out of that game. I think we just got…we had some good moments in the second half, almost scored but just couldn’t break their block. Frustrating, for sure.”

SOUNDERS FC MIDFIELDER DANNY LEYVA

On the team’s ability to control the midfield early:

“Yeah I think the first half overall, I think me and Josh [Atencio] and Fredy [Montero] did pretty well to get on the ball, just maintain possession. I think we needed a little more attacking movements up top and be able to be more dynamic but I didn’t think it was too bad in terms of possession, maintaining the ball and trying to break their lines so, we could have done better but I don’t think it was too bad.”
