QUOTE SHEET: Marsch, McCarty, and Duvall discuss RBNY's 0-0 draw with FC Dallas

New Your Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch
 
On tonight's game...
 
I think, for us, it was a good point on the road. To come against a dangerous, attacking team, one of the most dangerous teams in the league, and to come in here and get a point, and get a shutout, showed that we were ready for the game and that we game planned and executed the right way. We felt that going into this game that the game was going to be there for us from the 75th minute to the 90th, and it was. In the end, it's a little bit frustrating not to find that one play to get us the three points, but in the end, the guys played well, stuck to the game, and on a hot night I thought the overall performance was good.
 
On his team's defensive performance...
 
The backline, overall, did really well. (Fabian) Castillo is one of the most dangerous players in the league, if not the most dangerous and we didn't give much away. He had one chance at the end that resulted in almost a broken play, but Chris Duvall was up for the task. I think Karl Ouimette did a very good job filling in, and the pairing of him and Damien (Perrinelle) was quite good, and Kemar Lawrence played well. We've used a lot of combinations on the back line, but they've all stepped up and performed admirably, so that's a good sign.

On tonight's game...
 
It was a tough game for both sides. I think it was a very tactical battle tonight. I thought they sat off us a lot and let us have possession and they were looking to hit us on the counterattack with their dangerous players. We did a good job, for the most part, of containing them. Obviously, they had a couple chances here and there. Felipe had to save one off the line, which was fantastic, but overall I thought it was pretty sloppy from both teams in the attacking third. No one really got a good foothold on the game or created too many dangerous chances. A draw was probably a fair result.
 
On his team's backline performance...
 
We got a shutout, that's a positive. I don't think Luis (Robles) had much to do tonight, maybe two chances, one from Castillo and one Felipe saved off the line. We could tighten it up and be a little sharper back there, but overall anytime you get a shutout it's a positive. We can do a better job of being able to play a little bit cleaner out of the back with the ball at our feet.
 
New York Red Bulls Defender Chris Duvall
 
On tonight's game...
 
I thought it was a hard-fought point. Both teams came to fight, but we would have liked to get more out of the game. They had a few chances. We had a few good chances, and I think it was a good result for us against a good team, getting a point, but we were looking for more.
