Cristian Roldan scored his first MLS goal of his career. That it came in the game where Jordan Morris scored his seventh was practically kismet. The two 21-year-olds have become fast friends this year, and it was on display postgame.

It wasn't just this precious moment, either. Morris made reporters wait a couple extra minutes so he could finish composing his congratulatory tweet to Roldan and they were giggling and practically making googly eyes at each other in the postgame locker room.
Great win tonight! The fans were awesome as always! And so happy for my boy @CristianRoldan. Congrats on your first goal! #❤️❤️— Jordan Morris (@JmoSmooth13) July 14, 2016
In a season so full of frustration it was good to see the two youngsters -- both enjoying breakout seasons -- really enjoying themselves and being able to laugh. If they keep playing the way they did on Wednesday, this could be a common occurrence.
