In Chicago's 2-1 win at Dallas on Wednesday, Chicago keeper Sean Johnson saved a Blas Perez penalty kick (Johnson's fourth career PK save in 11 attempts) after a Dominic Odurofoul on Bruno Guarda. Then Chicago got the winning goal after Dallas keeperKevin Hartman saved Sebastian Grazzini's attempt and Marco Pappa slammed home the rebound.
Officials neglected to call Papa for encroachment. "I just saw the ball rising, and the ball, thank God, came to me," Pappa said.
"Sean Johnson made a great penalty kick save, and then I save a PK, and the guy who scored the rebound was four yards inside before the ball was struck," Hartman said. "That's obviously something the referee didn't see. It's disappointing."
Pappa could only shrug his shoulders and smile when asked whether Hartman's protests were warranted, reports Anthony Zilis. "Everybody said I was in early," Pappa said, "but that's soccer."
