D.C. United Head Coach Ben Olsen

On the game overall
It would have made life a lot easier if we could have gotten that second goal, and at times I think we can manage the game a little bit better. It's a good and bad thing at times because we have guys that are just so hungry to go and score goals, and they have the ability to do it.
