MLS Regular Season
DC United's Chris Rolfe on wild 10 goal-affair at RFK Stadium: "The craziest game I’ve ever been a part of"
WASHINGTON - Moments after D.C. United’s wild, back-and-forth 6-4 victory over Real Salt Lake on Saturday evening, United’s locker room was full of jubilant voices. For the second week running, United had battled back from a 2-0 deficit to claim a win, and players and coaches were basking in the post-victory glow.
There was one voice, though, that was nowhere to be found. Ben Olsen’s.
It's been a wild day in MLS. As it turns out, it may have been the wildest day in MLS history.
On Saturday MLS teams combined for 39 goals, the most in a single day in MLS history according to the Elias Sports Bureau. August 1, 2015 has topped May 28, 2011, when the previous record was set. On that day, 30 goals were scored, highlighted by a six-goal outburst from the Philadelphia Union against Toronto FC.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – In one of their cleanest performances of the season the New England Revolution rode two goals from Charlie Davies and benefitted from a Jozy Altidore red card to sink Toronto FC, 3-1, at Gillette Stadium on Saturday night.
ORLANDO , Fla.- Adrian Heath had urged his Orlando City fans to “get the Citrus Bowl bouncing” in a crucial showdown with conference rivals Columbus, and his team gave the home support plenty to cheer in a totally dominant performance against the in-form Crew.
Despite conceding an early goal, a new-look Lions team found their cutting edge and romped to their biggest win of their debut MLS season just seven days after a 5-3 defeat at New York City.
And, for the first time this season, the New York Red Bulls got the better of the Philadelphia Union.
WASHINGTON - It seems like D.C. United have been making a habit of giving up early goals. And it also seems like they’ve been making a habit of coming from behind to erase them.
