Here’s some of what FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman had to say tonight after a 3-1 loss to the Sounders eliminated his club from playoff contention.

“It was a very important game for us, obviously, with Portland beating Vancouver, we felt like we had an opportunity to get a point and hopefully three, but it was a well played game by both teams, difficult environment as everyone says, and our guys gave everything they had.”

On the goals: “PK called, always a game changer, we score a nice goal, come back a call on our side of the field, but they played it quick, something we talked about, and they got a pretty easy goal out of that, and then scored a third. I think if you look at the stats and everything, it’s probably a lot closer game than the score line.”

On the disappointment: “Well, it’s not just this game, it’s the whole season. I ask you to look at any team in the league that has gone without seven starters in a game, tonight we went without five, we left five guys at home. We’ve done that the whole year. I think Blas [Perez] is leading the team with 9 goals, and I think he has missed half the season, with injuries and call-ups. For what we have on our team, not just with the injuries and suspensions and the things we could have done a little better at, I know my team, and I don’t know how much more I could get out of them. We had Seattle twice at home, and both games we think we outplayed them, and found a way not to win. It has been a whole season thing.”
