Number Puns Aren't Really My Four-te

Another dominant performance, but this one ends in a win. Player ratings and some thoughts from Sporting Kansas City v Montreal Impact.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

So it was nice to finally see a really good performance translate into a win. And goals! Oh the goals, the goals. I remember those. They're fun to see. Especially when they're coming from the run of play and not just set pieces and such.

I'm not even really sure how much to recap. Sporting Kansas City got the best of every category over the Montreal Impact. They were even fouled more!

Will those goals mean Dom Dwyer wakes up? Maybe a good time to stick him on a fantasy team. Then again, he seems like he feeds off adversity, so maybe he's the rare striker where confidence and good form are bad for his game? But I doubt it...

And Collin, eh? What a cheeky little backheel flick he had for Dwyer's first goal. Really good stuff. From everyone.

That's about all I have for my commentary, actually. I'm really happy with the performance and the result and the goals and the weather and everything. Here's some ratings.

Montreal Impact
Troy Perkins 5.0
Matteo Ferrari 4.5
Eric Miller 3.9
Hassoun Camara 4.2
Karl Ouimette 4.2
Justin Mapp 4.2
Felipe 4.7
Collen Warner 4.5
Patrice Bernier 4.7
Callum Mallace 3.9
Jack McInerney 4.2
Marco Di Vaio 4.2
Andres Romero 4.5
Team Average 4.4
Sporting Kansas City
Eric Kronberg 5.8
Aurelien Collin 7.7
Matt Besler 6.1
Seth Sinovic 5.8
Chance Myers 5.5
Lawrence Olum 6.6
Benny Feilhaber 5.0
Graham Zusi 6.1
Sal Zizzo 4.7
Paulo Nagamura 4.7
Alex Martinez 4.2
Jacob Peterson 4.7
Dom Dwyer 7.1
Claudio Bieler 4.2
Team Average 5.6

So maybe a little surprising to see Collin rated higher than Dom, but remember, he did have a goal, an assist, and was part of a backline that a clean sheet. Well earned in my book.

I suppose the only remaining question is whether Sporting Kansas City looked that good, or the Montreal Impact looked that bad? I'm going to say both.
