United where it desperately wanted to be, out of that mid-week playoff elimination match.

Hamid’s best work came in the 63rd minute, as he stretched well to push away Sherjill MacDonald’s point-blank shot.

Come to think of it, though, his late, late save on Alex’s drive was pretty doggone good stuff, too.
