Rapids Head Coach Gary Smith
On the 1st half:

”I thought we were disappointing with the ball in the beginning of the first half. There were a lot of occasions that we squandered possession too easily, but the difference was Omar. His finishing was excellent. Although we came in up 2-0 there were plenty of things that weren’t quite right.”

On D.C. United:
“On the day you’ve got to give their players a lot of credit for their work ethic, which was absolutely outstanding.”
