Edson Buddle scores second goal in as many games in loss at Sporting KC

Buddle says loss "puts us in check"

Colorado Rapids forward Edson Buddle following the 2-1 loss at Sporting KC:

On the second half:

"We battled all game. I think the team did a good job especially with the heat conditions. I think they were just as surprised as us that we hung in there and competed all game. It just shows the toughness of this team."

On his second goal in as many games:

"Absolutely, I don’t know if it’s luck when you do it two weeks in a row. When you shoot you never know what can happen."

On how the team will get back on track next week:

"It was probably a good thing. Now we can refocus going into LA next week. It’s not going to be easy, but it probably puts us in check. We just need to continue doing what we have been doing and look to win in LA."

On playing against his former team next week:

"It’s a special game for me because I loved playing in LA before I was even on LA. I’m looking forward to playing against them."
