Although they play in a lower-tier soccer league and draw fewer people than a city commission meeting, the Miami FC Blues are still very much a part of the South Florida sports scene in that they suck. In three seasons, the Miami FC Blues had never scored a goal against the mighty Montreal Impact. Then, during the second match of this season, they finally did as team star Alex Afonso headed in a goal after just 15 minutes of play. In the end, though, everything went to shit.
Montreal scored the equalizer not long into the second half. Then Miamis Shaun Frazier suffered a dislocated elbow after running into teammate Juan Pablo Galavis in a Keystone Cop-style collision. And with just six minutes left in regulation, goalkeeper Josh Saunders tried to clear the ball but somehow threw it right to Montreals Dwight Barnett, who subtly tapped the ball into the back of the net for the Impacts go-ahead goal. Game, set, and match, Milosh. The Blues remain winless against Montreal and winless at home. However, Sunday at Tropical Park Stadium, they look to stop the madness as they face the unfortunately named Carolina Railhawks. Kickoff is at 6 p.m.
