To the point - Quotes from Santino Quaranta


The Black-and-Red got a point on the road against a stout Chivas USA defense. Santino Quaranta's wonderful goal in the 85th minute gave D.C. United the tie  . . . and then he tried to get Bryan Namoff to give him a piggyback ride.

He offered the following about the game:

On the team's come back:
"I thought the team fought back. Chivas is good at home, they've done well all year. I think that the guys that came on (substitutions) did a great job and it's good to get out of here with a point."

On his performance:
"I was just trying to make plays and I had a pretty good second half tonight. But I'm happy with the team's result."

On his goal:
"I tried to get it on frame and I struck it perfectly and it moved a little bit and went right down inside the corner."

On the team's six-game unbeaten streak:
"It shows our resilience. We have a very deep team and we fight back and play the full 90 minutes. We're getting results and everybody is pretty happy."
