Aurora's Armstrong: "I was hoping to represent my city by playing well"

Colorado Rapids homegrown player and Aurora, Colo. native made home debut in the 2-1 win over Swansea City:

On emotions coming into this game:
"I was just trying to be as calm as I could be. I remember how I was back in Metapán [in the CONCACAF Champions League], I was freaking out. I feel like I matured more as a player, I was able to keep calm, keep cool."
On making another debut against an international team:
"It was great. I couldn’t ask for two better games to play in. It was a great experience."
On being from Aurora after Friday’s tragedy:
"My thoughts and prayers are going out to all the families and friends affected by that event.  It was good. [I was] hoping to represent my city by playing well. It was great, it was great to get out there."
