Gutsy for the wall to stand in there and not duck on that free kick, but did someone's elbow come up to hit that ball?

Our defense is in utter disarray, yet it feels like we can still get another goal ourselves

DeLeon and Kitchen haven't been involved much this half on offense, but that was a nice sequence to give EJ another chance

Agreed. I got the feeling the ref was looking to send a message to Christian based on past history (but that's reading a lot into it)

That was the worst defensive sequence of the half for DCU

Nice to see Sean Franklin marking up Henry tightly despite the big height difference

Am I just forgetting similar passes by him last year, or is this a totally new part of his game?

How great is it to see Kitchen moving into the box to take shots?

Lots of time, but I hope NYRB starts to press forward because I think we have some more goals in us
