With that, on to the moments that mattered. Thanks to a baseball stadium, you'll see why some of the angles are the way they are I guess.
We'll start with Conor Doyle, skipping over his heavy touch on the breakaway on Josh Saunders that should have been a goal, and move ahead to his pullback following a nice interception from Perry Kitchen and touch from Chris Rolfe to spring him. Note Alvaro Saborio's reaction:
Moving ahead to the goal, and Rolfe's anticipation to get to the NYCFC defense first was nice:
Minutes later, the Bobby Boswell goalmouth save. I'll note Perry Kitchen's run from midfield to the box to get to Kwadwo Poku while ignoring the end result:
Moving forward to the second half and the first NYCFC goal, along with Markus Halsti losing Thomas McNamara (who, it should be noted was calling for the pass for a second or two before appearing in frame), that David Villa pass is nuts:
Moving further ahead to the game-winner from Poku, starting with the turnover, ending with a crazy goal and pass:
And finally goal three, and Bobby Boswell looking...not good.
