Spirit score more goals in 1 day than DCU does in 2, and more: 8/14/17 Freedom Kicks

Some familiar names bubbling up and such also.

Hi. Did you all dry out yet? Anyway, Sunday night games suck for those of us scrambling for links. Minor gripe, I know.

Recaps of D.C. United’s 1-0 loss to Real Salt Lake from us (with more from us here), WaPo and MLS. RSL Soapbox has the land of Mormon..ity? point of view, along with the Deseret News, who tapped our own Steven Streff for some help. Streff worked both locker rooms last night and worked them well, so give him an attaboy if you have a chance.

Spirit denied by the crossbar three times en route to 2-2 draw with the Boston (us): The Washington Spirit tried and tried again, but couldn’t get a third with the Boston Breakers, and they’re tied for 8th with same, almost eliminating hope for a postseason appearance for them.

Now a quick dive into DCU alumni:

Monarchs sign former Union, Dynamo winger Cruz (RSL Soapbox): Danny Cruz moves on from the SF Deltas to Utah’s USL team.

Swansea City are made to suffer in ugly display (WalesOnline): Rather than use the whole wordy headline, I’ll cut to the chase and say Swansea City kicked off their 2017-18 Premier League campaign with a scoreless draw to Southampton. Next!
