So all 4 local pro soccer teams won? That’s damned good news.
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:
Congrats @ErikImler on your induction into the Maryland Soccer HOF last night. It was an honor to introduce you. Special evening with so many teammates, coaches, & family in attendance to celebrate your many achievements in soccer. #BowieBoys @noelsoc @RudyFuller1 @stevecampbelI pic.twitter.com/FspKazECj7— Bill Heiser (@BillHeiser7) May 11, 2019
The second was one where Christian Gomez had purportedly done the same after Nueva Chicago’s defeat in Primera B to Independient Rivadavia. But folks talk too soon according to his son:

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