Well that sucked last night.

Yeah, that wasn't the way we wanted things to go last night in Seattle.

FCD confident they can win series back at home | Dallas Morning News

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.

Pareja stews over incorrect calls in loss |

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.

Confident Dempsey proves to be the solution for Seattle |

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.

Home teams show well in first legs |

New York picks up big road win | Once a Metro

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.

Conference semifinals in the balance |

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.
