MLS 2010 QUOTESHEET

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2010 – D.C. UNITED 1, TORONTO FC 0

D.C. UNITED HEAD COACH BEN OLSEN

Presiding emotion after the game…
“For me, I’m proud of the guys for the fact that we missed a couple really good changes and in the past we haven’t found a way to win, and we found a way to win it tonight. I’m relieved that they get to enjoy the fruits of their labor a little bit. They’ve worked hard the last month or two, they’ve done everything we’ve asked but sometimes it just didn’t go in for us.”

D.C. UNITED KEEPER TROY PERKINS

On playing in Toronto…
“We wanted to come here and play well; it’s as simple as that. It’s a great atmosphere to come and play. I remember the first year they in the league was the last time I was here and it’s always a fun time to come here and play it’s always a great game. No matter what we wanted to keep the zero, if we get a goal great, but if not we’re going to defend our goal. To get a result is fantastic for us.

On getting a win in Toronto…
