So the Sounders just lost to Montreal. I’m now sitting in my room, licking my wounds before I make a long, 6 hour trip over to Eastern Washington. Let’s start out, though, with a quick recap of this cringing game before I have to rush out the door before the sun sets.
In the 18th minute, Montreal scored their first goal off the foot of Martins. The game would go to the half with Montreal leading 1-0. Feeling confidant that my boys would come back, I petted my new toy Honey Badger that my friend gave me today for a birthday present with a grin on my face.
My smile disappeared at minute 51 when Justin Mapp found the back of the net due to bad defending. Then again, Andrew Wenger scored at the 58th minute with a beautiful shot.
Speaking of bad happenings with defensive players, around the 55th minute, John Kennedy Hurtado was shown a red card and was forced to leave the game off a questionable call. It made me yell out a string of certain words that probably should not be repeated.
We were a man down, losing 3-0 when Fredy Montero decided to show some magic. He passed the ball around Montreal’s defense, finding Eddie Johnson who chipped the ball into the net at 61st minute. Fredy would later be taken down in the midfield from a two-footed, studs up tackle that would have gotten anyone else sent off if the ref was actually good at what he was doing. The criminal got off with only a yellow when it was clearly a red.
Then Lamar Neagle came on and showed Sigi why he should have not been traded for Eddie Johnson. At the 87th minute, he scored the final goal in the match, beating Brad Evans and Bryan Meredith and hitting the netting.
After the match, Sigi had a few choice words for the referee after the game. Who could blame him, though?
