D.C. UNITED ASSISTANT COACH CHAD ASHTON
Overall thoughts on the game:
Big [relief], it feels like it’s been a long time coming. I
don’t remember the last time we had a game like that. It was good; I think we
have been knocking on the door for a performance like that for a while, and to
put it all together is a good feeling. Hopefully we can realize the things we
did well and use them going forward.
On the decision of starting goalkeeper Joe Willis:
