MLS Weekend Review 4/6

Orlando City SC verse DC United:  It seemed like Orlando City had most of the good opportunities in the first half.  One hitting the post, another was one on one with the keeper where all Molino had to do was pass it to the side and it  was a wide open net for his teammate.  DC United came back at the end of the first half to get a great opportunity that just went wide of the post.  The second half didn’t have as many opportunities for either team to score.  DC got the better opportunities.  DC United had three different chances, one was stopped by the goalkeeper, one was stopped by Brek Shea, and the other was shot punched over the bar.   DC got a late free kick just outside the box.  The wall broke apart and Luis Silva put it right where the opening was which made it hard for the keeper to stop the ball from going in the net.   This was the deciding factor of the game.  DC wins on heartbreaker for Orlando.  Orlando City 0-1 Dc United.

Chicago Fire verse Toronto FC:  This game had some great back and forth action.  Toronto had most of the possession but that doesn’t mean that wins the game.  Chicago scores early, but Toronto answered back.  Then it was Toronto’s turn to take the lead then give it up.  Then Chicago Fire got a free kick outside the box, which they did a little move to pass the ball out to the left of the wall and Jeff Larentowicz fired a shot to the bottom right hand corner of the goal to make it 3 goals.  Chicago Fire 3 – 2 Toronto FC

Colorado Rapids verse New England Revolution:  The Revolution was happy to add Charlie Davies to the lineup.  He was able to get the team fired up and going offensively, even though he didn’t score.  Juan Agudelo scored a beauty of a goal, bring the ball down great and placing it over the oncoming keeper.  Then when the ball hit the bar, Agudelo followed the ball and kicked it in just for good measure.  Later the in the game Colorado pulled the Charlie Davies down in the box.   Lee Nguyen stepped up and buried the ball in the net. 

Seattle Sounders verse Houston Dynamo:  The Houston Dynamo really controlled the game, but couldn’t put a ball away.  The Dynamo made a big mistake by giving the ball up in their own half and the Sounders were able to capitalize on the mistake.  The Dynamo just couldn’t get any good shots off.  It seemed like all the shots were either wide or right at the keeper.  Seattle Sounders 1 – 0 Houston Dynamo. 

Vancouver Whitecaps verse Los Angeles Galaxy:  Not many people can hold LA Galaxy to one shot on goal, but the #1 ranked team in the league right now did that.  Vancouver is on a very good winning streak right now.  They lost the first one, but have not lost since.  The Galaxy was able to hold on to till the second half before Vancouver just took over and scored.  Octavio Rivero was able to score his fourth goal of this season, which is top of the MLS in scoring.  With two goals in the second half, Vancouver just cruised to the win.  Vancouver Whitecaps 2 – 0 Los Angeles Galaxy.
