Superliga Wrap: Night Two

Well my predictions about this competition at least to this point look laughable. Pachuca my pick to win the Superliga controlled the match versus L.A. Galaxy but some fantastic individual play by Landon Donovan and Cobi Jones cost them the game. Then last night, DC United the team I picked to face Pachuca in the August 29th final struggled at home and finally ended in a draw with 10 man Moriela. Recall, that I said that both Moriela and the LA Galaxy did not belong in this event and that both had been included solely for marketing purposes.

Match two last night had a great atmosphere at Robertson Stadium as we saw Houston really take the match to Club America. A great piece of work from Stuart Holden set up an easy finish for Nate Jaqua, and Dwayne DeRossario and Joseph Ngwenya really frustrated Club America’s defenders all night, capping off what was a dominant performance in a 1-0 victory. Eddie Robinson and Craig Waibel also deserve praise for an outstanding night for the Dynamo.
