Sweet Victory When the Parts Fall Together
The answer was definitely “Yes” as to whether Olsen’s Army was gobsmacked at seeing an own goal ripple the back of the opposition’s net!
Yet, it shouldn’t have been that surprising to the bouncing hordes that finally got to taste victory at RFK again as the team has definitely been making strides in the right direction.
We Never Forget Our Friends
Now that the inglorious streak has finally been snapped, what were some of your favorite moments from the match?
Two moments were particularly significant for us that might be lost amongst all the hullabaloo surrounding such highlights as the stalwart defending of the back line, Perry Kitchen playing like a man amongst boys and, of course, Chris Rolfe’s instant contribution to the offense.
Did you catch how Charlie Davies took a moment to acknowledge the Black & Red faithful? Even more important was how fans welcomed Clyde Simms and embraced the efforts to spread the word with #OURFRIENDCLYDE?
