A win. Three points. By any means necessary.

That’s what the United States Men’s National Team needed from its home World Cup qualifier against Costa Rica on Friday night, and that’s what it got. The fact that it happened in near-white-out conditions, in Colorado, where this sort of thing tends to happen, is just an instantly legendary footnote.

Clint Dempsey scored the Ultimate Snow Poacher goal, and Aston Villa keeper Brad Guzan allowed no goals in the 1-0 victory — a clean sheet of ice.

At one point early in the second half the referee, aided by CONCACAF officials, tried to stop the match, but both sides wanted to play on. Warriors. They didn’t exactly play soccer for the rest of the match, but it was certainly the right call to just plow through to the end.
