The only goal of the match came when the Portland Timbers won a corner kick and kept pounding away at the goal mouth. They would eventually score after a Ford save and Yedlin clearance stopped earlier attempts on goal. Much of the game was similar as the Seattle Sounders were out-of-synch and pushing deep reserves and non-roster players against a lineup much closer to starting XI from Porter's side.
What a difference a few days made for the Colorado Rapids and Portland Timbers.
After Portland stifled the Rapids with a 1-0 result at Jeld-Wen Field last Friday to put the
2010 MLS Cup winners in last place in the Western Conference, the Rapids bounced back with a
comprehensive 3-0 victory over the Timbers at Dick's Sporting Goods Park Wednesday night.
Despite missing Obafemi Martins (knee), Shalrie Joseph (hamstring), Steve Zakuani (groin) and Osvaldo Alonso (birth of daughter), the Seattle Sounders certainly did not look like a depleted team early. In the tenth minute, the always explosive Eddie Johnson scored on a corner kick service from Mauro Rosales, and Seattle were up 1-0.
Juan Carlos was envisaging a nice out-swinger for one of his team-mates to attack as he prepared to take a corner kick against Real Sociedad at the weekend. Instead he destroyed the corner flag and left the ball sitting exactly where he left it. There's not really an outcome to this situation that isn't embarrassing [.
Armenia winger Aras Ã–zbiliz gives us all a laugh with this hilariously bad corner kick attempt v Denmark in their World Cup qualifier last night which Denmark incidently won 1-0. It seems even the match officials felt sorry for him after ordering a retake instead of a free out for handball.
There was a lot riding on Denmark's World Cup Qualifier trip to lowly Armenia on Tuesday night. Not only were De RÃ¸d-Hvide looking to secure the play-off place in UEFA Group B, but they were keen to avenge the humiliating 4-0 home loss they suffered in the reverse fixture last June.
Manager Martin Olsen got preparations off to a controversial start, after he was forced to apologize for comparing the aforementioned loss to the tragedies of 9/11.
Thierry Henry scored the first and last goals in the New York Red Bulls' 3-1 win against Columbus Crew and he finished off his brace in spectacular fashion with a goal scored off the back post directly from a corner kick in the third minute of injury time.
Columbus' backup keeper Matt Lampson had just come off the bench in the 85th minute and Henry took advantage of that fact by duping him into thinking he was going to take a short corner.
Perhaps rejuvenated by winning the MLS Cup last season and making frequent trips back to England
to visit the royals and serve as an Olympic mascot throughout this season, David Beckham is
enjoying a very productive year. He now has seven goals on the season (his previous best was five
in 2008, his first full season in the league) after scoring with a typically perfect free kick in a
2-0 win against Vancouver on Saturday.
QUEENS, N.Y. - The William and Mary men's soccer team dropped a 2-1 decision
Saturday night to No. 12 St. John's at Belson Stadium. The College cut the Red Storm lead down to a
goal after sophomore Marcus Luster netted his first career score in the 69th minute. However, the
Tribe was unable to tie the match as it fell to 1-2-1 on the year, while St.
Women's Soccer Dominant in 4-0 Win Over Akron Courtesy TribeAthletics.com KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Behind three first-half goals, the William and Mary women's
soccer team cruised past Akron, 4-0, on Sunday afternoon in its final game of the First Tennessee
Lady Vol Classic.
Nobody should question Chicago Fire captain Logan Pause's threshold for pain and drive to return
to the field from injury after what transpired in the last month.
During an Aug. 12Â game against the Philadelphia Union, Pause, 31, was defending a corner kick
when Bakary Soumare, his former teammate on the Fire and current Union defender making his team
debut, elevated for the ball, inadvertently striking Pause from behind.
Yep, you read that right, a 1-1 win. Let's be honest, any result in Honduras other than a loss
was going to be a tremendous positive. Falling down a goal early, losing Nathan Sturgis to a red
card and still pulling off a draw...well that's just epic.

After each match the contributors to New England Soccer Today will rate the performances of
the New England Revolution players who made an appearance on a 1 to 10 scale (1 horrendous, 5
average, 10 perfection).
The New England Revolution made history tonight as they extended their winless streak to 10
games, more than any other team in the club's history.
Playing host to the Philadelphia Union for the only time this season, coach Jay Heaps decided to
shake up the lineup tonight in lieu of recent performances as well as various injuries and fatigue
as they entered the second of their three game home-stand spanning just 8 days.
Shalrie Joseph made himself feel quite at home at Gillette Stadium Wednesday night.
In his return to the place he called home since 2003 until a trade sent him across the country
to Chivas USA, Joseph scored two goals to spark a three-goal comeback and help the Goats salvage a
3-3 draw against the Revolution to keep their faint playoff hopes alive.
Liverpool had a late second half lead but had to settle for a draw as Manchester City
capitalized on a defensive lapse in the EPL on August 26, 2012. The Reds were the stronger side for
most of the match and both City goals were basically gifts.
City did not have a great start as Liverpool took a 1-0 lead on a Martin Skrtel goal.

Liverpool bossed the game and took the lead with a Martin Skrtel header after a brilliantly
struck corner kick from Steven Gerrard. Yaya Toure equalised just after the hour following a Pepe
Reina mistake, but just three minutes later Joe Hart was picking the ball out of the net after Luis
Suarez brillintly curled the ball home from a free-kick 25 yards from goal.
There's no reason to pretend the start of this season has been anything other than totally frustrating. This game was a perfect example of why. The Seattle Sounders weren't awful, heck they were pretty good for long stretches, but couldn't score and gave up a goal on a corner kick that probably should have never even happened.
Fernando Aristeguieta fired a shot from distance that was obviously deflected out for a corner kick. The linesman's initial signal was goal kick, but referee Silviu Petrescu, spotter of the obvious, came in and correctly ruled it a corner kick. The Union proceeded to waste the corner kick.
Former Sporting KC midfielder, Alex Martinez was sent off this past week for Orange County in a crazy finish in their 2-1 loss to Wilmington. The craziness started in second half stoppage time with the game tied 1-1. Orange County won a corner kick. Martinez went over to take the kick, but before he could, some pushing in the box, just in front of the goalkeeper, led to a pair of red cards, one to a player on each team.
Yesterday in a thrilling match, US defender John Brooksscored in the 86th minute to secure a win over for the Americans over Ghana. The goal came off of a corner kick delivered by Graham Zusi. An exciting play for sure and a critical 3 points for the US. But, at this point in the World Cup competition should we have expected a goal to come from a corner kick?
The large El Salvador contingent in attendance at their Gold Cup quarterfinal agains the USA in Baltimore made their presence known throughout the match, making noise and throwing whatever they could onto the pitch when an opposing player would attempt to take a corner kick. Landon Donovan experienced this with the U.
Montreal Impact defender Hassoun Camara scored a 38th-minute equalizer against Colorado with a clever bit of skill that didn't even require standing up. After tumbling over an opponent in a failed attempt to head a corner kick, Camara found himself sitting in the box. In the confusion as the ball squirted around, it made its way to Camara's feet, allowing him to flick it up to himself and get a shot off while sitting with his back to the net.
It's halftime at Gillette Stadium and both teams have struggled to get ahead of the other. The wind is blowing and the elbows are swinging, providing the Foxboro faithful with a raucous, chippy first half but with only a handful of chances for the two clubs.
The first clear chance came for Sporting Kansas City in the 19th minute when a corner kick found its way into the Revs' penalty area, and was rebounded within the 6-yard box.
D.C. United ended their first Florida stint of this preseason with a come-from-behind 1-1 draw against MalmÃ¶ FF. United equalized in the second half through a header by trialist Nane off of a corner kick. If you'd like more details on the match or some photos, I suggest heading over to dcunited.
Benfica midfielder Nicolas Gaitan scored his first goal of the season in spectacular fashion. Gaitan opened the scoring against Estoril from a corner kick 37 minutes into the match with a flying backheel volley that floated over his teammate's head and into the far side of the net, bringing back memories of Gianfranco Zola against Norwich.
Kickapoo Senior Connor Heeren chips in the corner kick for a goal
Springfield, MO The Kickapoo Chiefs had a plate full on Tuesday night as they hosted the visiting Carthage Tigers. It was Senior night for Kickapoo as they celebrated the time thirteen of their boys had spent playing soccer for them.
A crazed pitch invader attacked a linesman during a stoppage in play at a match between Chernomorets Odessa and Metalist in Ukraine. The man, a Chernomorets fan, lunged at the linesman while the officials conversed with the Chernomorets manager about a corner kick awarded to Matelist and grabbed him by the throat while pushing him backwards.
Frem goalkeeper Jakob Kohler proved to his his side's secret weapon in a Danish Second Division
East (the third tier of Danish football) match against Birkerod. In the 92nd minute, with Birkerod
up 1-0, Kohler came forward for Frem's last-ditch effort to equalize off a corner kick.
After the ball was headed away from goal and a Frem shot was blocked by a defender, Kohler
executed a beautiful overhead kick off the deflection and, to the surprise of everyone, scored an

first time the Lady Miners have started a season 2-0 since 2003 when they opened with three
Well, at least it wasn't a loss. The game had some positives (like seeing Cruz getting more and
more involved), some negatives (like Cruz doing Pajoy impressions with his sky-shots), and some
"well, that's interesting"' (like Adu seeing so little time on the field).
There's little time to stew over it though as there is a quick turn-around with a Wednesday game
The LA Galaxy cruised to a home victory over FC Dallas and Sporting KC were held at home by the
