It was funny as all get out to see Eck look talented!


I can see now why he was drafted first.  He's clearly above 2nd division level.

Problem is, he doesn't seem to be able to step up to being 1st division
level, at least, not as a striker.  He's good as a 'stopper' (to misuse a
soccer term.  I'm meaning it in the baseball sense) -- someone to sub in
when the game is in hand to keep it that way.

REALLY hard to tell.  We (the Inferno) had Hahnemann in front of us for the
second half, so Soehn was WAY at the other end.

When he and Cassar were subbed in, the Sounders smelled ***, and went for
the kill.

With an effectively untried defense, Dallas almost succumbed, but Cassar
made some spectacular saves, and there were a couple times that I thought
we'd blown it.

So I guess Soehn must've done something right.
