5-2-1—this was just what I needed after last week’s 0-fer.
USL1 Friday Night Game
Portland Timbers @ Montreal Impact 0-2 Montreal—1-0 Portland
Congrats to the Timbers for pulling out a huge road win, though riding the bus overnight only to lose at Rochester on Saturday must have really stunk.
Wednesday June 6
New York Red Bulls @ Toronto FC 2-1 NY—2-1 NY
Just about what I expected. The real question at this point has to be, just how good is JPA?
Thursday June 7
Colorado Rapids @ Houston Dynamo 0-1 Houston—1-2 Houston
I really hate that MLS and ESPN scheduled this against the USMNT game. Seeing the Rapids lose softens the sting a bit though.
Chinese MNT @ Real Salt Lake 0-0 Draw—0-1 RSL
I should have stuck to my original pick here. Seitz seems to have played a great game. On the other hand, the RSL FO stunk it up with some incredibly bad moves like kicking fans out of the stadium for protesting the PRC.
Saturday June 9
LA Galaxy @ FC Dallas 0-1 Dallas—1-3 Dallas
Chivas USA @ Chicago Fire 1-0 Chivas—1-0 Chivas
The goats get the win, and the “Fire Dave” movement keeps on growing.
Sunday June 10
New York Red Bulls @ DC United 1-0 NY—2-4 DC
Wow, I didn’t even see this one coming. Two consecutive hat tricks against New York? Wow. Emilio ended his scoring drought, and Ben Olsen proves that he can score too … I think their may be a fourth team to watch in the east.
Houston Dynamo @ Columbus Crew 1-0 Houston—2-1 Houston
I didn’t watch it, so I don’t know anything more than the score.
