Postgame comments

SOUNDERS FC HEAD COACH BRIAN SCHMETZER

On the team’s performance:

“So, I have a lot to be happy about and pleased about but there was a couple of moments where I thought we could do a little bit better. But as always, I’ll do our process, we’ll review the film and you know….sometimes in the emotion of the day, you get carry away a little bit because, you know, it was a big game and some ways because Sporting KC have had their numbers. So yes, a little frustrated but I think the tape it’s gonna show us that we played pretty good.”

SOUNDERS FC FORWARD WILL BRUIN

On his goal:

“I have to go back and watch the actual build up to it, before Cristian [Roldan] got it. I know Cristian had it a little outside the box I know he loves whipping those balls back post and so I just made a near post run and cut back and saw the defender bite to the near post. Cristian puts in a great ball and I tried to head it across goal and that’s what happened.”

SOUNDERS FC FORWARD JORDAN MORRIS

On if he’s worked on scoring with his head:

“Yeah, I mean it’s something I’ve wanted to add to my game. Keep building on that component obviously as a winger and getting in on the back post and trying to finish in different ways. I’ve been good with [my] head. I think my last three goals have been headers, so it’s good to keep improving different things.”
