Obvious comment: Chris Rolfe is so important to this team. What a great addition early in the season when this year wasn't looking good. It was the turning point of the season.

Lots of bad first touches out there for DCU tonight--but EJ's first touch in the box was sublime

Not an artful foul by Boswell. That could be reviewed early next week by the league.

He was oh so close to making it around that corner, then the narrow sideline jumped out to ruin it.
