I think that Lalas' comments are probably the first he's said in a very long time that I can somewhat agree with.

Lala probably had a shut-up clause in his contract that lasted until the end of the season, which for the Gala ended early.

UVa has controlled much of the match and hit the posts, but it is 1-1 right now.

Carden and the Hokies won another match after PKs. Carden saved four of the PKs.

It will be interesting to see how the Hokies do against the Albicelestes on Sunday. (As someone noted in a separate thread, it will be shown live on CSN.)

In other NCAA women's action, Navy got by Colgate. They have to beat Army on Sunday, period. There is no way the Patriot League will get a second berth. W&M and JMU were both upset in the CAA semis, so the winner of Hofstra-Northeastern gets the automatic bid. The CAA may get a second invite, or possibly even a third, so W&M and JMU are on the bubble. WVU got knocked out of the Big East tournament at the semifinal stage, but they should get a bid, as should Georgetown.

In area NCAA men's action, GWU and GMU won, probably putting them in the middle of the seeds for their respective conference tournaments next weekend. And of course, Maryland beat the other Albicelestes, while Virgina lost to Wake Forest.

I'm confused by all these Albicelestes. ho's playing Argentina and who's playing the New Jersey WPL team?
