Yeah, that wasn't the way we wanted things to go last night in Seattle.
// FC Dallas //
FCD is the best team at home in MLS this year, so anything is still possible. A 1-0 win would kind of be karma for last year as FCD would win on away goals.
At the end of the match we saw Oscar Pareja discuss a lot of things with the officials, but from the sound of things it was all over the foul on Matt Hedges that set up the game-winning free kick by Clint Dempsey.
FCD did a good enough job containing him for the majority of the match. That free kick was a ridiculous strike though. Not many keepers are saving that.
From the Seattle side of things, our pals at SaH give us their take on last night's game.
One more recap to get the morning started off.
// MLS //
I will say this, yesterday as a ton of fun with four games in back-to-back-to-back-to-back form. I could get used to having that each weekend moving forward.
The only road team to have success yesterday (well Vancouver did get a draw in Portland), was New York in their 1-0 win over DCU. Sure, they got some help from the officials on a bad foul that should have easily been a red card moments before Dax McCarty scored.
A lot of back and forth play in this one but neither team gave an inch in this one. Portland did look like a team that had played three games this week though.
Montreal has been so good at home as of late, I wasn't too shocked by this result.
Anything is still possible this Sunday in these four series. The only one that seems pretty certain to end where it is at right now is the NY-DCU series.
This was by far the wildest thing we saw yesterday.
I don't get why they would change their logo right now.
