Thoughts on the match

"We came back twice which is good to see. It's been a tough stretch for us. We played some real good stuff in the first half, and to go down a goal and get one back is good. Then I think we gave up a pretty silly goal, but we fought back hard to get back in the game. All credit to the guys. I think we scored in the 87th, 88th minute so their effort was fantastic tonight."

Thoughts on the goals

"It’s [Will Bruin's] fifth goal. I think he's tied for what he did last year, so Will is off to a good start this season. And Luiz Camargo scored his first goal for us at the very end so it's good to see Luiz get on the score sheet. I'm sure it's going to give both guys confidence as we continue the season."

Thoughts on Geoff Cameron at center back

"It was a preseason game, maybe three years ago or so, and we just threw him back there during the halftime and he looked pretty confident and pretty good. We decided to stick with it and he's adapted to it very well. We had him playing in the midfield last year up until the end. We put him in the back and he seems very comfortable back there, he's good on the ball and a good defender. And he's now getting looks for the  National Team. I think it's well deserved and I hope he gets a chance to stay and play well for them."

Thoughts on the match

"We were playing well, and then unfortunately they got the penalty kick call. I think we have faced a lot of adversity and we have been down in situations, but we’re a team that doesn’t give up, we fight back, and in this game, we kept our cool. We got that goal, and I think we pretty much controlled the rest of the game from then on."

"We knew we were playing well (in the first half), and we had a lot of chances that could have made the score 2-1 or 3-1 if we had put the ball away, but we didn’t. We knew that we had 45 minutes left to play, that it was going to be a battle, and that we had to keep the intensity up."

Thoughts on the run of four games in 11 days

"LA comes into Houston on Saturday, and it’s a 1:30 game, so it’s going to be hot. We need to recover for a week because we have played four games in 11 days. It’s been busy for us, so we are going to take care of our bodies this week and be ready for Saturday."

Thoughts on another comeback

"We’re a team that has good camaraderie. We stayed together even when they took that 2-1 lead, and we still knew that we would be pressing forward. We had confidence that we would get another goal, and we did. We’re a team that fights for 90 minutes."

Thoughts on the match

"It was our fourth game in 11 days and we knew we were going to have a week of rest after this, so we gave it everything we had. Coming here is never easy with the turf. We were happy we didn’t lose with the way the game went, but we also believed that we could have won as well if we had better possession and some better chances."

"We felt as though we had been dominating the first half, so it was just a matter of continuing to create chances. We went behind with that third goal and it was disappointing, but we always battle back and we never give up. We're never just going to give up. It was good we got a goal, but we were disappointed that it wasn’t three points at the end."

Thoughts on the final goal

"We had about five minutes in total to try and get that last goal. Then we finally got that tying goal, which was great. It was a great goal by (Luiz) Camargo, who is one of our substitutes. It’s great when substitutes come onto the field and make a difference, especially a goal. So it was good for him. It was also good for Brian Ching who made a great pass to him. It was a good finish overall. We would have loved to get a goal after that. We had a little bit of time left and felt like we had the upper hand. It didn’t end with another goal, but at least we got that one."

Thoughts on the next match

"We will be heading back home for the next game, and typically we are a better team at home then on the road. We’re undefeated in three games now, so we would like to keep that going. We don’t want to just be undefeated, but we want to win the games as well. We have a little bit of a rest time here, with a seven-day period until our next game. Hopefully we’ll get going this week and get a win against LA."
