Colorado Rapids team captain Drew Moor following the 3-0 loss at Portland:
On playing well at times against the Timbers, despite the loss:
“I feel like I’m starting to sound like a broken record, especially over the last couple of games, but we played very well at times. We started well in the first 10 minutes before their first goal, but eventually it can’t just be about playing well, we’ve got to get results, we’ve got to win games like this."
“It’s okay sometimes to not play well, but to still get results, which is something we did at times earlier in the year. We didn’t always play well, but we got results and I think that’s what it was about today. Yeah, we played well at times, but at the end of the day, we probably just got beat by a team that was better today.”
On the Rapids’ defensive effort:
“We can’t be giving up three goals on three shots [on goal]. It’s down to the entire team as a unit. As a leader of the defense, I’m frustrated with it, but we got to try and put it behind us because it doesn’t get any easier from here for us.”
On the team’s need to regroup following three straight losses:
“We’ve got to stay together right now. This is a tough time for us, but it happens to every team at some point in every season. We have to stick together. We have to try and put this behind us and learn from some of the mistakes we’ve made. We’ve got to grow together. We are a tight-knit group. We do everything we can to win games and it’s important that we don’t let this get turned into something worse. We’ve got to regroup and look to our next game at Montreal on Saturday night.”
