MLS semi-finals, leg 1
The first leg of the home and away aggregate goal series went close to how I thought it would go. The Crew tied the Wizards with a late goal; so they will have to win the series at home. Wizard play maker Hercules Gomez will sit out that game because he was ejected after a violent foul in game one. New England was unable to score goals at home but luckily for them, the Fire didn’t score any either so their series is tied. The Red Bulls tied Houston on their home turf so they will probably get pounded when they travel to Houston. Real Salt Lake took a goal at home and hopefully they will survive their trip to California. Not surprising, there were three ties out of four games and not much scoring.
