Hoops Triumphant... Oh, Wait: FC Dallas 2, RSL 3

Last night, a team in red hoops was flying around the pitch, probing the final third, and ultimately put its finishing together to blow out a quality opponent. Then we all quit splitting our attentions between the US 5 - Scotland 1, and an at-the-time scoreless FC Dallas-Real Salt Lake match. I'd rate last night's game as the worst gut punch of the season so far (with plenty of competition), because it had a rare ingredient. Hope.

Dallas had its chances last night, and deserved a draw. Then, in the dying seconds, Zach Loyd was pulled down by his shirt as he tried to clear the ball, and it fell to Nat Borchers, who buried it in the back of the net. Yeah, there were other goals, draws, calls, non-calls, and passes to discuss, but I just don't have the time or the energy to go into any more detail this morning.

How about I work with you guys to put the meat of the match recap in the comments section over the course of the day?
