It’s definitely in the running. Watch Houston goalkeeper Tally Hall make a complete hash of trying to claim this free kick from Colorado midfielder Jamie Smith last night at Robertson Stadium:
Across the country, scores of junior high school girl goalkeepers are nodding their heads and saying, “Been there.”
The Dynamo had taken a 1-0 lead just three minutes before Hall’s gaffe, on a slick cut-back and shot by former Rapids midfielder Colin Clark.
Ten minutes after Hall’s gaffe, Houston would give up the game-winner when they failed to clear a long throw-in. The ball bounced off two Dynamo defenders and Colorado striker Caleb Folan poked it to left back Scott Palguta, who slammed it home.
Tough loss for the home team.
