Overall a good night, although the Fire won't win many visitng fans over with thier poor defensive plays (not to mention color scheme). Also I believe that it was Brandon Prideaux that headed the ball to the America player for the first goal. That doesn't do the play justice. Prideaux headed 4 feet onto the toes of an attacking player a ball that was going out for a goal kick.(Both CA's goals were very soft.)
No FIRE bench player (Rolfe included) made a case to be starting tonight. I think only Dykstra may have moved up the pecking order with a strong, decisive performance.

Luis: it was Prideaux who headed it. Pause isn't going to be happy with that report.

Correction: Luis was right. It was Logan Pause. He should punch himself in the face for that. Really. He has brought shame upon himself and the entire Fire organization.

Wasn't it Prideaux with the bad header on America's first goal?
