Get on to the Bus

Man, I went back and forth on whether or not I wanted to go to the game this weekend, considering how hot and sticky it would be with a 3 year old in tow, but I'm glad I did. Really good night, good result, and consdering how many guys were out due to International Duty, not to mention Dom tearing it up in the USL Final, I was really pleased to see that team chemistry still appears to be in tact, even when going down to that depth. Our performance and playing style didn't seem to change much, and I Was glad to see the guys really attack and never let up while playing at home.

Got some ratings to dish out, but first, a few snapshots to dump.

And now, numbers. Only critique is Benny's numbers look low, he's played real well since the All-Star break, but like Roger before him, and to a certain extent, Uri, he does the work that doesn't get much notice in the stat sheet. I'm sure he's okay with that.

Claudio Bieler with man of the match for the PK conversion and the assist. Arguably, benny did the work on the goal, and Soony did the work on the assit, but I thought Caludio had a decent game and was good to see him get back on the score sheet. Hopefully that adds a bit of confidence going into the final stretch.

And... that's all I have to say about that. Power Rankigns coming up in a bit.
