DMV soccer wins, D.C. alum updates & more: Freedom Kicks for 5/13/19

One day it’ll stop raining. One. Day.

So all 4 local pro soccer teams won? That’s damned good news.

Recaps of D.C. United’s 1-0 win over Sporting Kansas City from us, Flo and MLS. Got one I missed/you think folks should see? Comment away. Also tell them to post sooner on a Sunday night.

Spirit nab first road win in over a year in 3-2 triumph at Sky Blue FC (us): The Washington Spirit win on the road? What kind of voodoo is this! More from WaPo and Once a Metro.

Loudoun United triumphs in second half over Charlotte Independence (us): Loudoun has a chance to get to 3-3-3 next week. Given they had no players a month before kickoff and they regularly dress less than 18, this is kinda crazy. More from the USL. Also, welcome back Chris Odoi-Atsem.

As Jozy Altidore returns, Auro and Laurent Ciman suffer new injuries (MLS): Self-explanatory header here, and an FYI ahead of D.C.’s game with Toronto FC.

Quick updates on a couple of D.C. alums, starting with Erik Imler:

So whew, bullet dodged. Anyway, it’s still raining so may as well watch the game again or something.
