The STATE of Soccer in WASHINGTON
by David Falk
I don’t know about you, but I’ve watched the late goals by Sammy Ochoa and Fredy Montero over and over again since Saturday night. I’ve also done the rewind on Kasey Keller’s four saves in 12 seconds sequence numerous times.
Thrills and chills.
It was a night of pure magic with a perfect ending coming out of a not-so-perfectly-played match. In the end the drama lived up to the moment, what happened on the pitch eventually became worthy of having 64,140 people see it in person.
Kasey Keller? He was deserving of every compliment he so adroitly deflected before and after the match.
He’s an American soccer, and now a Seattle Sounders legend. The match is right near the top in thrills for the three-year-old MLS side.
