Quotes: Revolution 0, Rapids 0

just great saves for both teams."

On the team's performance:

"We have a lot more confidence at home and again it's great to create chances, but the name of the game is, you work 120 yards from one end of the field to the other and to put the ball in the net and we didn't do that tonight."

COLORADO RAPIDS MIDFIELDER CHRIS HENDERSON:

On the team's many scoring chance:

"It's just frustrating we created so many chances, you want one of those to go for you, there are games where you get three or four and you work so hard to create those and we just needed that one to go, but it didn't go tonight."

On the difference between this game and last week's match vs. Kansas City:

"We didn't play well last week, and I think K.C. did a good job getting 10 players behind the ball every time we had it. They were hard to break down, and tonight we were much better at attacking and creating more stuff. So the positive is that we didn't give up the ball and we played much better soccer tonight, but it's still disappointing not getting the full three points at home."

COLORADO RAPIDS GOALKEEPER JOE CANNON

On Twellman's shot from point-blank range:

"I think you would rather take one in the head than to have a goal scored on you anytime. I knew after it hit my head, the thing I was worried about was I thought maybe a rebound, but I knew we saved it because it obviously didn't hit the back of the net it hit your face, so in that sense I was happy."

COLORADO RAPIDS DEFENDER GARY SULLIVAN

On if he was surprised to be playing as a forward:

"Not really because coach had told me a few days ago that he would consider me is it was a game where there were lots of crosses, he said he would consider putting me in for like 10 minutes to see if I could get a head on one."

On his two near misses:

"I mean it's unfortunate. I got my chances, hopefully later in the season coach gives me another shot and I can put some away, but it was fun. I've never played forward before so it was a good switch up."

NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION HEAD COACH STEVE NICOL

On the result:

"We are more than happy. We created two or three terrific opportunities to score and we kept things tight on the back. Going down to 10 men changes things, but the important part is that we came out with a point."

On Adin Brown's play:

"I don't want to talk about Adin, I think everyone back there had a terrific game. For the last 20 minutes I was very happy. It's unfair to point someone out."

NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION GOALKEEPER ADIN BROWN

On the effects of the altitude on the ball:

"It makes a bit of a difference. I would have liked to control more balls, but the fingers that I jammed in Los Angeles are not quite ready yet, so I decided to punch more balls than usual. The important thing is that we came out with a point."

NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION FORWARD TAYLOR TWELLMAN

On the result:

"The game could have gone either way. We got good scoring chances and we are happy to come out with a point. Personally, I'm a little disappointed. Maybe I could have put one away."
