Kyle Reynish - GK Next » 2 of 14 « Prev
Kyle Reynish may have the height advantage over Nick Rimando, but he still has much to learn about field vision and distribution. Too often his goal kicks or punts went astray, either out of bounds or right to a Dallas player. He made up for his poor distribution when he was tested a handful of times in the heart of the second half by Dallas' Jacobsen and Jackson who both sent strong, low shots at Reynish that both required skillful saves. Dallas' Matt Hedges found way to score on Reynish though in the 75th minute, when he skipped the ball right at a retreating Kyle Reynish who blocked it but had fallen too far back into the goal to keep it from breaking the plane first. He deserved less consideration with Dallas second goal in the 85th minute when Blas Peresz sent a ball right at Reynish that should have been an easy catch but Reynish elected to punch it out and didn't make full contact so that the ball ricocheted into the goal.
