Dynamo postgame quotes (it’s Dynamo at L.A. Galaxy this week)

Galaxy will host West final at 8 p.m. Friday on ESPN2. Will you watch?
DYNAMO MIDFIELDER STUART HOLDEN
On winning the playoff series …
“We did the Houston magic tonight, and that’s what we got them on. Great effort.”
On the mentality of the team coming into the match …
“To be honest, I think this group and the mentality was that we were the only team that was going to win. They had a couple of chances on counter attacks and maybe set pieces. Other than that, I was confident that even if they scored, that we would have the chance to get one back as we’ve done previously in other playoff games. That’s the mentality of this team: We are never going to give up, and we knew it was going to take something special tonight. Brian came up with that for us.”
On the defensive effort …
“Pat Onstad made a huge save in the first half off of Geoff Cameron, and made another great save off a chip from Freddie Ljungberg. He kept us in it all night. Geoff and Bobby [Boswell] were great in the middle winning a lot of aerial battles against Nate [Jaqua]. Mike [Chabala]and Andrew [Hainault] did a good job getting forward and defending and helping out the attack. I think 1 to 14, including subs, you couldn’t pick a player that had a bad night tonight.”
DYNAMO MIDFIELDER BRAD DAVIS
On Houston’s performance …
“If we keep playing with the same mentality and the same desire, I definitely think we can raise that [MLS] cup in the next couple of weeks.”
On who they will face in the Western Conference final …
“It doesn’t really matter right now to us. If we play Chivas, we are at home, which would be great. If not, we play against LA, and both will be tough match-ups. We will take a couple of days and enjoy it, and we will start preparing for them next week.”
