Was it the Rain?

DC United vs. Kansas City Wizards

Thank god it rained.

Going into last nights match againt the Wizards, I felt that due to United's recent run of play, that a 1-1 draw was about all either team would be able to muster. Our defense (minus the two 88 minute goofs) had been just as rock steady as it had been all season, so only allowing 1 goal to a club that had scored 5 in their last three matches would be probable.

The game kicked off pretty normally, with both sides really not being able to do that much against each other. As the first half moved on, I was beginning to think that 1 goal a piece might be puching it and if anyone scored, I thought it would be on luck. Then the rain came. And the Thunder and Lightning. Everyone scurried up under the second level over hang, except Bara and the Screaming Eagles. After the 40 minutes of the delay, United looked a little different. Their defense looked even stronger than before and we were able to get that one move into their back. That was all that we needed.

The defense got us the 1 point we should have won from a draw. The rain gave us the other 2 points. Troy was my man of the match, he was rock steady in goal. As a former keeper, I was always worried about soggy shots and grip. He looked like he was playing catch with the goalkeeper coaches.

Hopefully the midweek match in Kansas City will be just as good, with us stealing another 3 points from them.

Saturday in the rain was maybe the most fun I've had with La Barra Brava. We'll need more than 1 goal to take the 3 points on Wednesday, I think.

I honestly don't see us getting the result Wednesday night. If Conrad and EJ play, they will probably be able to squeak out the victory.
