Two quick thoughts before I let the players do the talking. First, Freddy Adu seems to be in a particularly happy and relaxed mood right now. That's a very good sign.
Second, you all know for how long I've been making the point about Roger Torres' skills as a playmaker. We saw it again tonight, and it was the latest step in a growth process for the Colombian that has seen him get a lot of playing time in the last few games.
Torres seems to have become not just more confident on the ball, but more focused as well. He remains involved in the flow of the game, instead of wandering out to the flanks as he's done before. He also seems to have developed just a hint of bite in his game. I saw him track back in a couple of key situations last night and work to harass opposing midfielders who had the ball.
There are still a fair number of games left, but this was a huge and potentially season-defining win. If the Union can pull off that kind of performance Kansas City on Friday, then the team will have some serious momentum as the final push for playoff ranking begins.
