Quotes from last night: Real Salt Lake

HEAD COACH JASON KREIS:

Overall thoughts: “I’m really, really pleased.  I thought the guys played probably the best match we’ve played this year.  From start to finish for me, I thought it was the most complete match.  I thought they just did an excellent job on both sides of the ball.  I’m really pleased that the guys showed they’re happy to be back together and chomping at the bit for another difficult segment of our season.”

MIDFIELDER KYLE BECKERMAN:

On the first game back after the break: “We were real excited to get back together; we all missed each other for the month or so.  We got a good day of practice yesterday, and the guys have been working real hard these past couple weeks.  [Tonight] we wanted to get rewarded for the hard work.”

On the first goal: “It was a pretty even game [at that point], we were going back and forth.  Jonny Steele got the ball, held it up and played me a ball.  I just took a touch and whipped it into a dangerous spot and Fabian [Espindola] put a great header on it.  It was a great start and something we really wanted to go into halftime with.”
