has this game started yet?
its in the 4th quarter, i believe it is 14-14. but im not positive.
at the end of the 3rd quarter, it was 12-12.
14-14 going to overtime
they are now going into a second overtime...
The game was awesome... Both Phily and La Raza fought hard all game long.
Both teams did not capitalize on Power Play opportunities on the 1OT... La Raza ended up winning on a restart goal by Victor Quiroz just 30 something second into the 2OT.
KiXX FALL IN MONTERREY , 16-14, IN DOUBLE OVERTIME
Philadelphia has now dropped four consecutive decisions
Monterrey, Mexico, December 28, 2008 – The Philadelphia KiXX were defeated by the hosting Monterrey La RaZa, 16-14 in double overtime, in front of 3,725 fans at the Arena de Monterrey. With the loss, the team’s second in Monterrey in three days and fourth consecutive overall, Philadelphia remains one win shy of 250 for its 13-year history and is now 0-4 since recording their 249th victory.
Philadelphia native Pat Morris opened the scoring with a two-point score from teammate Ricardinho at 2:25 of the first quarter; with the tally, both players extended their individual point streaks to six games. Defender Ryan Heins notched his second two-point score in as many games at 7:22 to extend the KiXX advantage to four, 4-0. Ivan Medina responded for the hosts with a two-point notch from Victor Quiroz at 12:18. Morris quickly answered, a mere 38 seconds later, to regain Philadelphia ’s four-point lead, 6-2, and close out the quarter.

Media tallied twice, while Byron Alvarez and Armando Teran each registered a two-point goal.

After a scoreless overtime period, Quiroz finished a pass from Martinez just 36 seconds in the second extra stanza to give Monterrey a 16-14 victory.
Notes: Tonight’s contest was the team’s first this season in which an extra stanza was necessary to determine a winner; Philadelphia is now 17-21 in overtime games and 1-3 in double overtime in the team’s 13-year history. The KiXX are now 1-5 versus Monterrey over the last two seasons. Philadelphia native Pat Morris and midfielder Ricardinho each extended their point streaks to five games.
I see. This year's Monterrey attendance gimmick is all the crowds are 3,720-something. (I think 3 of 4 have been). Last year it was multiples of 500. Kind of a neat tradition they're starting.
Next year it should be repeating numbers like 3,333 and 4,444.
Omaaar, NOW they're 3-0 against Philadelphia
I think in all honesty nobody is even counting the attendance figures in Monterrey. Someone is just guestimating...
Omaar.. why are most games on Thurs nights? Is Friday a Mexican drinking holiday with no work
NSL.. 3333 or 4444 still quadruples the standing room only rec center crowds at all PASL "arenas"
You say blah, blah. I say Rockford/Massachusetts. Was this really necessary?
gee, you guys think?
I would say Arena commitments, what event do you think will get more people (hence more priority on scheduling)... an indoor soccer game or a concert?
In all fairness, this season has featured more friday and sunday games... last season was all thrusday night games.
Some random things i just recalled from last night game...
- Corona beer was seen as a much needed new sponsor for La Raza (after Carta Blanca bailed this season)
- The next PASL Cup game was being hyped as vs. "los Dallas Outlaws", obviously for people to recall the hatred towards the Sidekicks...
- Ricardinho was red carded on the 2nd Qtr for Misconduct (He was shouting crap to the referees)
- Steve Reese played goalie for Monterrey, he had an average game, but came out big in the overtimes. (beats me why Geyer benched Bonti, since he played decently the last game)
Here's a video of the goals of the game (courtesy of elnorte.com)
Is that an MISL logo I see on the carpet in the video?
It's a stain.
it's probably stitched in.
Take it to the Big Soccer Indoor Soccer folk to look at the negative instead of commenting on the goals....
But there's 2 of those logos actually...
Beats me why they have not changed them for a PASL-Pro logo and a NISL logo.
That would cost money.
