  • Disappointing game at the half. Defense again appears to be a misadventure waiting to happen. Way too many errant passes trying to bring the ball forward in the first half though they did seem to be settling down to completing some better passes the last 10 minutes. Have to feel fortunate to be tied at the half with the chances DC had.

  • Shipp was our best player today. I think we have a real gem of a player. His corner for the goal was the best corner this club has had in years. Pace, swerve, accuracy all in that one ball. He has earned his place on this team. Nyarko was back to his normal self. Quincy looked good. Baky looked good again. We looked pretty good as a team today. Magee is struggling out there it seems.

  • Quincy, Shipp, and Nyarko were the stars of the game.
    Didn't think the team played all that well given the opposition,
    with a mediocre first half. Would have liked to have seen Duka (if he's healthy) come in for Alex who seemed to have an up and down game. We should sitting on at least 6 points at this point instead of 3 when you look at the quality of teams we've played so far. Magee ended up as a non factor.
    Nyarko deserves a start, offense became alive when he came in.
    Defense still leaving gaps and the team passing percentage seems fairly low so far.
