Harris dedicated game-winning goal to newborn daughter

Colorado Rapids forward Atiba Harris scored the game-winning goal - his first as a Rapids player - in home win over RSL:

On dedicating the goal to his newborn daughter, Keriana, born March 26:
"It was always planned; whenever I scored I was going to dedicate it to her. It’s always a blessing to bring a new life into this life, so I decided to honor her."
On his time since her birth:
"I need some sleep! The last week and a half have been really hectic. We got back from LA then my wife was admitted to the hospital, so it’s been pretty much the whole week at the hospital. It’s a relief now, to have the whole family home."
On the significance of the victory:
"Whenever we play Salt Lake, we have to win. There is no doubt about it. We’re at home, we need three points, it’s against our rival and we have to win for the city. For the whole state."
