Seattle (Morris) scored... up 1-0... in great position to advance as they lead 3-1 on the aggregate.

23 or so degrees at kickoff. Gonna feel like they're kicking a rock and I don't envy the goalkeepers hands when they make saves.

Lemme get two claps and a Ric Flair

23 or so degrees at kickoff. Gonna feel like they're kicking a rock and I don't envy the goalkeepers hands when they make saves.

Markus when I was in college, woke up one Saturday morning. We had a game at noon and saw that we had gotten a foot of snow overnight. Our coach tried to call the other schools's coach to get the game cancelled but they were already on their way. Apparently it was a decent fall day all the way until they got about 8 miles from town. So we decided to go ahead and play.  There was no passing. Period. Couldn't be done. Every ball was a chip to another player who then tried to chip to another player etc.

 

Well the other team made a couple of chips and a guy came streaking out of the back and got behind everybody just as their player had a long over the top chip. Was perfectly lofted to where their runner could get it and I had no chance to get to it first. All I could do was move out to cut off his angle. He hit the ball full on and it hit me square in the chest. I thought somebody had taken a baseball bat and hit me in the ribs. My chest hurt for a week after that. Hands? No problem with them at all.....couldn't feel them.

Right before half, Seattle makes a great ball into the box but Bradley had come clear back deep into the area to clear the ball. Just a superb defensive play by Micahel.  Entertaining half but no score. 0-0 as they go to the locker rooms to warm up!

0-0 at the end of regulation. A lot of back and forth play but neither team really built up much momentum. On to extra time.

First 15 minutes of OT and still the same story. Seattle subbed in Brad Evans for Jordan Morris. Defensive move so playing for kicks from the spot. Minute 109 and Toronto player beats his mark down the right flank and makes a lofted cross into Altidore. Jozy with a flicking header back across the goal mouth headed to the upper corner. But holy crap somehow the Seattle keeper manages to change all his momentum back to the near post and fully extends reaching backwards to flick the ball away. Unreal save. Save of the match right there.

Same story in the last 15 except the legs are all clearly done now. No score after 120 minutes of football so on to PKs.
