Houston Dynamo - Montreal Impact: Highlights, Stats & Game Quotes

Highlights, Stats and Quotes from the 1-1 draw between the Houston Dynamo and the Montreal Impact

The way the game started no one would have thought to see such a dramatic and crazy last 20 minutes. Will Bruin opens the score just before the end of the first half after some ''disappointing'' defending from the Montreal Impact. Some key substitutions and mostly a change of attitude and intensity helped the visitors level the game 1-1. Sanna Nyassi frees himself from the Dynamo defenders and scores on a breakaway. Note the excellent Marco Di Vaio pass on that play.

About the game

In the end, it is what it is. We nevertheless gave a very good performance in a tough place to play.

Regrets about the season

It's disappointing when you look at the cohesion, the strength we gathered in July and August..That helped us to have a go, but with all the points that we lost when we had the lead, it's tough not to give it double meaning. Yet deep down, we know we have to look at the big picture and be satisfied.

Callum Mallace, Montreal Impact midfielder

Proud of the team

I'm proud to be a part of this team,I can look every guy in the eye and give them a nod knowing that they've given everything they've got.

Jesse Marsch, Montreal Impact Head Coach

About the hard battle

They battled and they deserved to win tonight. We got a couple breaks. They hit the post. We battled like hell to clear balls off the line, throwing their bodies in front of plays. That's what it takes on the road. That's what it takes against teams like this.

About the non-penalty call

In the end, that is a penalty on Sanna Nyassi. Print that, print that. Because it is 100 per cent a penalty, and the referee did not have the cojones to make that call.

It hurts because we know we are out. That part hurts, especially knowing we should have had a late penalty. We are continuing to move this thing along, and the effort the guys put in tonight, and the way they competed for each other was pretty damn good
