    What a night!

    The game was won in the midfield with captain (and UofL alumnus) Paolo Del Piccolo having arguably his best game of the season. The guy completely dominated the ball wherever he was.

    Honestly, Louisville had more of the ball and the better chances and could’ve won by more.

    First team to win back to back USL titles. Only team besides Orlando City SC to win it twice at all.

    Hopefully we’ll get some US Open Cup matches in the coming years but yeah, it won’t be the same. Playing Indy and St Louis will be great, but I’ll miss the heck out of the Dirty River Derby.

    Game highlights on YouTube. Bit incomplete. Didn't include a ridiculous Brian Ownby solo dribble all the way from one end of the field to the other where he was tackled just before he could get a shot off. Didn't include a very late chance from Phoenix that went just wide.

    I'm still waiting on the full game video to appear on YouTube. It took the USL 3 days to get the final game posted last season. Maybe it will show up tomorrow.

    I donít know how their new contract works now that games are on ESPN+. As far as I can tell, they still havenít posted the conference finals from last week to YouTube. They do have the conference semifinals up.

    I know itís still OnDemand on ESPN3 if you have a cable subscription.

    That Ownby breakout came just after the 66 minute mark and he was not tackled. Blackmon, who Ownby beat when he spit the defenders, got back around him and knocked it out for a LC corner kick. That was cool to watch.
