One More Chance

MC Game 2: Stoners 6 Saints 5 - 2 goals from Rolfe, 2 assist from Donovan and a point from Nielsen was not enough to overtake the Stoners. "It was a good match. Very competitive. But, the boys came up short." All is not lost just yet. Thanks to the results, Houston loss to Toronto allows Gateway United a legit chance. A win over Houston could springboard the boys into the next round. To help bolster the roster, Gateway United has signed Pajoy and Robson to short term contracts.

Saints Avoid "MAJOR" Disappointment


MC Week 1 Gateway United 3 Toronto FC 3 - Gateway United avoided a huge setback to open the 2012 Majors Cup by managing a late draw against Toronto FC of the MLS. "We got lucky. Toronto is a club know for giving up late scores, and they did it again." The silver lining came from the other result in Group A. With the other clubs also only earning 1 point as well. The schedule will only get tougher. Up next Gateway United will have to play the BSL Cup runner-up Stoners.
