Colorado Rapids captain and defender Drew Moor following 3-0 loss at Vancouver:

Thoughts on the match:
“It was disappointing, obviously. We almost looked like a team that was just satisfied to be in the playoffs, and that’s unacceptable at this point. It sounds like the opposite of what you might think, but it’s a game as a professional that we have to put behind us right because we don’t have time to dwell on it. We don’t have time to think about it too much. Take it for what it is. We didn’t show up, we didn’t perform. At this point of the season, you can’t have performances like that. This might need the wake-up call we need.”

On the defensive mix-ups allowing Camilo to score:
“I think it was just poor defending. The second goal I get beat in a one-versus-one situation, the third goal he gets in behind us. He’s a good player. Obviously he’s the Golden Boot winner, but our defence has been good all year. That’s just poor defending.”

On getting ready for LA or Seattle forwards:
“We have to turn the page. Both Seattle and LA are teams we matched up well against in the regular season. We’re going to have to use that, we’re going to have to use this match and motivate ourself a little bit. No matter where the game is, we’ve for the most part performed well on the road this season. We’re confident on the road. It’s a one off game. I’m trying to tell these young kids, it doesn’t matter at this point what it looks like, how you play, we’ve just got to go and get the job done.”
