Goal Flash: Chicago Fire 1-0 Seattle Sounders

Penalty given to Chicago for Jeff Park handling the ball in the area. However, the ball hit his hand, rather than his hand hitting the ball. Small distinction? No -- penalties aren't supposed to be given for balls hitting the hand.

The atmosphere in Qwest Field tonight is electric. Freddie Ljungberg has been booed each time he has touched the ball. Fredy Montero earned a yellow in the 28th minute for what was essentially a shove against Ljungberg. Everything that needs to be known about the relationship between the two could be seen in that push.
