And while the NASL looks to be shrinking next season to nine teams, assuming the best, it still was a pretty solid game. Enjoy the shootout below and baffle at the use of goalkeeper Jon Busch as the third shooter by NASL coach of the year Tim Hankinson!

Leftback Justin Davis and striker Christian Ramirez have been named to the NASL Best XI. Ramirez was a frontrunner for the Golden Ball and winner of the Golden Boot award. Davis is a bit of a surprise as many observers had seen Davis’s play dip slightly this year. He makes his third straight appearance on the list. It’s perhaps a sign of just how difficult the leftback position can be in soccer.
The Dark Clouds have announced that their year-end award ceremony and auction will be held on Tuesday, November 22 at 7 p.m. at the Nomad World Pub. They are still looking for donations for their silent auction, so contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have anything soccer-related to donate.
For many long-time fans, they’ve already noticed the change in culture around the club, but the move to MLS will surely cement things like this solidly in the past.

It might be time for him to go, based on his response to Megan Rapinoe’s protest of the national anthem.

Our favorite goalie/mathematician Zach MacMath will be getting the call to fill in for Tim Howard for the rest of the post-season. As he helped lead Colorado to the best record in the spring, I’m sure he will do just fine. Plus, it’s a chance for Minnesota fans to get an up-close look on a potential expansion draft pick for the Loons. At least, in my dreams he’s our number one pick.
In any case, feel free to share how you think Zach MacMath will win the MLS Cup for the Rapids below:
Like a phoenix, the #MacMathelete rises again. How will MacMath win the Cup for Colorado?

It should be a great atmosphere at Olympic Stadium in Montreal for their home leg against Toronto FC. Even better if they manage to pull off something as amazing as what Calum Mallace and Cameron Porter in one of Montreal last games at Olympic.
And the fans let him know how happy they were for him.
