Head Coach Ryan Martin
"I think overall I was just proud of the guys throughout the match, I thought we created more than enough chances to get a win, especially towards the end. We are continuing to grow but we have moments where we lack discipline and that can’t happen at the top level, and it gets even harder at the MLS level. You can’t take one moment off or you get punished, and you saw that tonight. But it’s a part of being a young team and growing, and I’m very pleased with the progress we’re seeing. We’re ready for a short turn around going to Pittsburgh next week."
On Kairou’s first pro goals:
"He's so dynamic and so fast, he just keeps growing and getting better here. And he’s always smiling, he could get kicked ten times and he comes up with a smile on his face. He’s just a great person to be around, first and foremost and his english is coming on a lot better. But on the field, we’ve been working with his final action. We think he can finish goals and complete assists. But his two goals tonight were fantastic and I’m really excited for him."
Forward Kairou Amoustapha
Overall thoughts on the match:
"It was a good game, New York was a tough opponent. Next time we have to continue to play like we did tonight and keep fighting for the result."
