How the 7,000th MLS Regular Season Goal was Scored
|The number was 6,994 entering the weekend. The early game saw Chicago defeat Toronto by the score of 2-0, so with the later games starting to kick off and four goals to go it was anyone's guess as to who would hit the milestone.|
(all times Eastern)
7:35 pm - NE vs COL kicks off.
7:37 pm - NY vs HOU kicks off.
7:38 pm - Goal #6,997: Conor Casey scores in the third minute as the Rapids take a 1-0 lead on the road.
7:52 pm - Goal # 6,998: Steve Ralston equalizes for the Revs from a penalty.
8:37 pm - DAL vs SEA kicks off.
8:55 pm - Goal #6,999: Jhon Kennedy Hurtado gives the Sounders a lead in Dallas. One more...
9:06 pm - RSL vs KC kicks off. At this point, any player on the eight teams in action could get it.
9:12 pm - Brad Evans hits the post for Seattle! No goal.
9:14 pm - Goal #7,000: Chris Wondolowski gets the Dynamo on the board, and the milestone off the cross from Corey Ashe. Video here.
10 minutes later: Wolyniec, Rocha, and Wolff (I believe in that order) all score at about the same time.
I'm glad to see MLSnet has published an article about this accomplishment, even featuring a quote from Wondo about hearing the news. Check it out.
