SAN ANTONIO, Texas _ In late Spring you’ll hear Arsenal Supporters start signing ‘She wore a yellow ribbon’ if the Gunners make it to the FA Cup Semi Finals/Finals at Wembley Stadium. On Saturday night at Toyota Stadium the Scorpion faithful should have been signing ‘the referee wore a yellow shirt and he has a pocket full of yellow cards”; seven to be exact.

San Antonio got exactly what they were expecting this past Saturday night against Ottawa Fury FC – a defensive battle that left each team walking away with 1 point after the 0-0 draw at Toyota Field.
