Seeing Red A Third Time

Because it was an issue in 2014 and appeared to continue to be one in 2015, we have kept an eye on ejections for FC Dallas this season.

Up Next – San Jose Earthquakes 1, at Toronto FC 3

Toronto really want to make BMO Field a home, and they are doing it with wins. Toronto added another win at the new BMO Field with a 3-1 win against FC Dallas’ next opponents, the San Jose Earthquakes.

Goals from Justin Morrow, Warren Creavalle and Luke Moore got the home side another win, even with Chris Wondolowski’s 101st MLS goal. Sebastian Giovinco did not get on the score sheet, but he played a huge part in all three goals and ran rampant again. San Jose, on the other hand, have cooled some from earlier success in the season and fell out of the last playoff spot in the West.

Arsenal 4, Aston Villa 0 – FA Cup Final

Arsenal finished the 2014-2015 soccer year on a high note, taking the FA Cup with a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa. While the team finished a bit back of league champions Chelsea, finally ending up in 3rd and the automatic UEFA Champions League spot that accompanies it, Arsenal can go into the summer with some hardware to add to the trophy case, as well as a record and some confidence that the awful start to 2014-2015 is well behind them.
