However, Dwyer's finishing deserted him as he had a great one-v-one chance pushed aside by Salt Lake's Jeff Attinella. Benny Feilhaber had a long-distance shot parried away. Graham Zusi had a shot dribble wide. Dwyer and Sal Zizzo both had excellent chances that, honestly, I'm still not sure didn't go in. If either shot gets through, we're talking about a big win for KC. Instead, Peter Vermes will go into the bye week looking to see if he can find a combination that can break through the force-field that seems to be surrounding the six-yard box at home. 2. A red or a yellow One of these tackles got a red card. One just got a yellow. Both were very reckless, studs-first challenges. Yet, Oriol Rosell was shown a straight red and Nat Borchers just a yellow. I expect the MLS Disciplinary Committee will at least have a conversation with both players. (Borchers' tackle looks pretty bad on replay, as it appears that his leg continues to rise after the challenge was started.) I don't usually bully the referee for his in-game decisions, but played side-by-side, those two seem awfully similar but were handled differently. Ultimately, the decision didn't ruin this game for Kansas City. But, with Rosell out for the next match (at least) on April 19, it could be a factor. 3. Man of the Match: Attinella While KC had its issues with finishing, let's make sure we give a little bit of credit to Salt Lake's backup goalkeeper, pressed into duty after an injury knocked Nick Rimando out of the game. He made eight saves on the game. Almost all of them huge. Perhaps none more so than this one on Benny Feilhaber. Or this one on Sinovic. Dude had a great game.
