Rising Survives the Shootout

It was excruciatingly painful, but Phoenix Rising  avoided the upset after 120 scoreless minutes to edge Austin Bold 8-7 in a nine-round PK shootout.

Dominic and Justin Vibber recap the roller coaster match, which included two post misses for Phoenix and heroics from Zac Lubin.

After they give an in-depth recap, the guys preview next Friday’s match against a scary Real Monarchs team that thrashed OC 6-2. Dominic explains why Monarchs are the biggest threat in the West, and Justin gives a relatively low-scoring score prediction.

Then they recap upset wins for Sacramento and El Paso, shower praise on El Paso for its comeback win in Fresno, and briefly discuss the East. Dominic & Justin disagree on the team they want to play in a potential USL final.

Finally, they discuss the most obnoxious (& now blocked) NM United troll ever. Living rent free baby! Plus an interview with USL Pony, & a shout-out to two fans who came from Yuma for Saturday’s match. Enjoy!
