It will go down as one of the uglier matches of the 2013 MLS season, but for the San Jose Earthquakes, Saturday night's match against the Seattle Sounders will be remembered as being beautiful for the three points they earned.

Walter Martinez scored a 48th minute finish, collecting an errant Steven Lenhart pass and curling a shot past Sounders back-up goalkeeper Michael Gspurning, for the eventual game-winning goal in a 1-0 victory over Seattle.

MLS: Ref Rescinds Red Card After Honest Philadelphia Player Defends Opponent’s Challenge (Video)

Who Ate All the Pies at related • 0 views

In a rather uncommon show of honesty, a red card was rescinded during DC United's MLS clash with Philadelphia Union after opposition players defended the actions of the sent off player.

The heart-warming incident happened in the second-half of the game, when DC United's Luciano Acosta was given a straight red after a tangle withHaris Medunjanin on the sideline.

Haris Medunjanin is the best

The Philadelphia Union midfielder does us all proud by doing the right thing.

In tonight's match against D.C. United, Philadelphia Union midfielder Haris Medunjanin was pushed down from behind by Luciano Acosta. In one of the weirdest sequences (even for an MLS match), Acosta was shown a straight red card by referee Sorin Stoica - and then was allowed to play on.

Poor refereeing? Totally legal goals? Or somewhere in between?

The Philadelphia Union just wrapped up a 2-2 draw with Orlando City SC after a thrilling second half, but multiple controversies will certainly dominate discussion for the next few days. After Kaka scuffed a (deserved) penalty in the first half, Orlando managed to find the scoresheet twice thanks, in part, to some questionable refereeing.

Seeing Red: Philadelphia Union 3-3 Colorado Rapids

The Union's late 2-goal lead fell by the wayside following a red card to Michael Lahoud. The Union left PPL Park having drawn Colorado Rapids 3-3 and wishing for better.

When Scott Caldwell knocked that Luis Silva cross into the back of his own net, and Lee Nguyen had his first penalty try denied, you had to feel like the soccer gods hadall butabandoned the Revolution.

Two weeks after they watched Sorin Stoica award two penalties to Montreal and a red card against them, and one week after a good goal was disallowed and a bad goal againstwas upheld, it seemed like the gods had better things to do.

Maybe I'm going deaf. Maybe I'm going blind. Maybe I'm going out of my mind. But it's hard to fault Sorin Stoica for what happened to the Revolution on Sunday.

When Matt Reis reachedto his left toimpede Marco Di Vaio from a point-blank, near-postopportunity, Stoica only had one option.

"Raining Yellow Cards" Philly Union - 1 TFC - 1

mistake by the lake (for now) at related • 0 views


It is hard to write about the game today. In style and tactics it was on the rough and ready side. I thought the ref (Sorin Stoica is the fellow) was card happy in the second half and had lost control of the game. Unless you consider giving Philly every opportunity to get back into it as controlling the game.
