    Good win for RSL. Only downside is that they didn't score more goals (mostly due to some bad luck and excellent saves) and Kyle's ejection.

    Having seen the replay I think the red card was warranted. But, even if he only showed a yellow Beckerman would still miss the next game because that would have been his second yellow in the competition.

    RSL should be able to pick up a full 3 points against Tauro FC in Panama next month, they are clearly the better team.

    Props to the back line. Although they weren't tested very much last night they got the job done. Kwame Watson-Siriboe has played very well for us. He will likely not see a lot of playing time once Schuler and Olave get healthy, but it's good to know that we have 4 solid center backs.

    I thought Paulo Jr played very well last night and deserved a goal. Hopefully he will continue his recent form as we enter the final stretch of the season.

    RSL is on its way to the championship! They're gonna get their ring! They shall be called the Fellowship of the Bling!
