Game 1 vs Redbulls " The Ugly Game" Lowlights abnd Highlights.

Lowlights

Ok I know its only the first game but Yikes! Lots of new players running into each other in the midfield . Midfield looked like the Keystone Cops. On defensene # 34 Centerback whoever he was responsible for giving up the second goal and he and Fhabino can share responsibility for the 1st goal. Both were out of position and got caught up field. Edu did not contribute to much offensively and seemed frustrated. I cant blame him the way the other midfielders played . Midfield could not connect many passes at all. Spacing was horrible. Thru balls rarely hit their targets. Just downright ugly.

Highlights

Jack Macs direct kick and positioning overall was good . He should have scored at least 1 more goal. Couple of nice moves by #22 Leo Hernandez A Couple of nice steals and passes by #19 whoever he was? It would be nice if the Union could have listed their roster. Blake looked good on the first and follow up block on the red Bulls attack in the second half. Williams had 1 nice cross .

Missing in Action

Casey and Hop

Overall Rating C- . Game was like a Parks and Recs or bad soccer high school game.

Offense C-

Midfield D

Defense D

Goalies B MacMath was not challenged much and the goal was not his fault. Blake made a couple of nice saves.

Coaching Incomplete

Hard to say. Hackworth may have accomplished his gaol bt trotting out several different players in the back.. He should reach the conclusion the that the Centerback and Leftback situation are not good.

Player of the game Ockugo played solid in defense. Unfortunately he cant do it all.
