    Good. Looked fun on TV.

    I was wondering if that was the same Colin Martin. My wife talked him out of a jersey when he was new here since her maiden name is Martin - it is a very small jersey.

    That game reminded me of a few big-boy United USOC games in Richmond. Lasted way too long.

    That match was a slog. I actually thought Richmond showed more quality in the attack, but I sure didn't see any "gee that guy could play in MLS" types out there. The fact that the announcers kept praising Drew Skundrich's quality says all that needs to be said about the match.

    Interesting, MLS YouTube page was streaming the game involving two teams that aren't in their league(s).

    yeah, I thought that was interesting too. Even more interesting; when I went to their page to find it, it was not listed anywhere, luckily I had copied that link here from the cup.us site

    Loudon is coming out to visit me. I think I will go and see them play. I've never seen them before and it looks like LAFC is taking this tournament seriously so it should be interesting.

    Just don't expect too much. My daughter and I went to Segra last year to watch the USOC match between Loudoun and Columbus. It was over within the first 10 minutes. Columbus up 2-0 and Samake with a DOGSO red.

    I would not expect too much from Loudoun either based on their USL play in general - but so far in this tournament, the USL teams are playing significantly better in USOC as they have in the weeks surrounding during normal league play.

    For a recent example: Loudoun and Detroit played to a relatively uninspiring 0-0 draw on a recent weekend, then Detroit went out and beat Houston the next week.

    And that is what make the Open Cup interesting. The USL teams get up for the match, it's their season highpoint. The Detroit-Houston match is a perfect example. Detroit came back twice in that game against a squad that had HH, Carrasquilla, Dorsey, and Artur all playing.

    Did anybody watch last night's game?

    Did they ever end up telling us what the hell happened toward the end (late 70s minute into 80s) where the ref stopped play, talked to both Captains, then his headset, then went and talked to both coaches, everyone walked around for a bit, then they continued play - indirectly led to 11 minutes of stoppage ..... I turned it off after the whistle blew and they hadn't explained anything by then.

    I hope someone wrote something somewhere; I don't expect much with sparse USL coverage.

    USL's youtube highlight reel had nothing on it, just jumps from play to an NC direct kick around the 80th minute with the announcer cryptically mentioning there will be about 10 minutes of added time. But that was it.

    Possibly it was in relation to a yellow card Lamar Batista received in the 74th, because when he received a yellow in the 102' for a dangerous challenge from behind and therefore red the commentator noted that the "ref has been wanting to give him a red." That would seem to refer to earlier happenings. That ref gave yellows like they were party favors, 9 in all. But after too much taxpayer time I havent been able to find any news or discussion of the game either.

    Of all 3 local teams, Loudoun's Friday night game against Lost Wages was hands down the best of the 3.

    If you like good goalkeeping, especially, this is a game to go back and watch.

    I saw it on channel 25 and I don't think they make replays available, but I think they said it was also on ESPN+ and I believe they do have replays - hopefully it was the same announcers.
