MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER QUOTE SHEET

SATURDAY, JULY 23, 2005 - REAL SALT LAKE 3, FC DALLAS 0

REAL SALT LAKE HEAD COACH JOHN ELLINGER

On the game:

"We had a good start and played well the entire half, we didn't start to sit back until the second half. What a great win going into the break, we need to build on this win."

On the play of Seth Trembly and Brian Dunseth:

"We knew we had to come in early and get a goal that was a big key for us tonight. Seth Trembly did a great job on Ronnie O'Brien all night and Brian Dunseth contained Carlos Ruiz, they came up big tonight."

On the play of Paul Broome:

"Paul Broome played great and I knew he was tired, but I wasn't going to take him out. He is what we need on the left side of our defense."

REAL SALT LAKE DEFENDER BRIAN DUNSETH

On the game:

"We got an early goal and then Jordan [Cila] followed it up and after that Dallas didn't know what hit them. For us it was a great result."

REAL SALT LAKE FORWARD JASON KREIS

On the game:

"We finished our chances early and anytime you get a couple goals up on a team it is extremely difficult for them to come back. In the end I thought we could have played a lot better in the second half. We could have pushed a little more and finished our chances."

REAL SALT LAKE DEFENDER PAUL BROOME

On the play of the defense:

"It was a good defensive team effort to keep Dallas in check, which is a tough task."

FC DALLAS HEAD COACH COLIN CLARKE

On the game:

"We didn't do very well tonight early on. We knew Real was dangerous on set pieces and they had three goals off of three set plays. We couldn't do anything to get the momentum back in our favor. It looked like a penalty kick right before the half and that could have swung the momentum but we dug ourselves a hole and we couldn't get out of it."

FC DALLAS MIDFIELDER SIMO VALAKARI

On the game:

"Real is a hardworking team and we are the team to beat so everyone is trying to beat us, but don't take any credit anyway from them they played really well tonight."

FC DALLAS FORWARD ARTURO ALVAREZ

On the game:

"We need to forget this game and move on and look forward to Wednesday's game versus the MetroStars. We need to bounce back against them and get back to our winning ways."
