Some Flyers Weren’t Too Pleased with the Outcome of Yesterday’s Women’s Soccer Match

Not surprisingly, Canadians weren’t happy about the outcome of yesterday’s US-Canada women’s soccer semifinal. Two calls, made right before the Abby Wambach scored a game-tying goal in the 80th minute, were controversial. 

The first one was against Canada’s goaltender for holding the ball too long (a rare call), which gave the US a free kick near the box. That play led to a handball call against Canada and a Wambach a penalty kick– she scored. 

Both calls were questionable… but whatever. Alex Morgan won it for the US in the 122nd minute, just moments before the game was to go to penalty kicks.

Flyers, Canadians Scott Hartnell, Matt Read and Harry Canibuyavowel were unhappy and questioned the result:

Sorry guys, can’t side with you on this one.

    Matt, it’s “couldn’t care less”. You’ll never win a cup with bad grammar.

    They’re right. The refs all but gave that one to the US.
    What’s Tortorella have to say about it?

    The free kick was BS, but there was two handballs on the same kick, you have to call one of them.

    Held the ball too long was a bad call but there was a hand ball. Also, who the hell would wanna watch Japan v Canada? Honestly.

    Uh, not sure we could “do without” Hartnell or Read.
    Also, not sure what planet’s “entire generation” was pleased by the US Women’s Soccer team.

    What about the announcers’ jinxes this year, though? It seems like there is at least one in every Phils game, and then the announcers for this game kept saying how Sinclair hadn’t scored in, like, 8 or 9 matches against the US. What did she do yesterday? HAT TRICK! They also kept going on about how Canada hadn’t beaten the US in x number of years, and they almost pulled that off!
