In a goalmouth melee, goalkeeper Joe Nasco turned and instinctively made to grab the ball. Rather than clutch the ball, just yards from the line, the man making only his second-ever appearance in MLS instead grappled Alan Gordon to the ground.

COLORADO RAPIDS HEAD COACH PABLO MASTROENI
On being down early in the game:
There are things that happen in the game that are beyond your control and there are decisions that are made that affect the game. There was a decision made early that definitely flipped [the game] on its head. I think it changed the whole landscape; the whole week, everything of the planning goes down the tubes and it’s about survival at that point.
