Video: Anatomy of a goal
You may have seen Luciano Emilio's goal last night in the team's 1-0 win over the visiting Wizards, but did you really take note of the hustle and awareness seen on the play from the Brazilian?
Jump ahead to the 2:05 mark to watch the goal again:
Take a look at who Christian Gomez plays the short corner - Senõr Emilio. Then, a great ball by Gomez to the near post for a sprinting Bryan Namoff. His re-directed header finds its way to the back post for Pontius, who throws his body down into danger to get a head on the ball.. after all that, it's Emilio who had worked to get back into a dangerous position to find the rebound and put the ball in the back of the net. An impressive effort from the team's leading goal-scorer.
