Spoiler alert: winning MLS games is awesome!

Me, Andrew M. and Austin D. from break down Orlando City's first ever victory in Major League Soccer, a 1-0 road victory over the Houston Dynamo. I'm still calling for MLS to give the goal to Pedro Ribeiro but, own goal or not, they all count the same and the Lions share the top of the Eastern Conference table with fellow expansion team New York City FC, just like we all thought.

We discuss the finer points of the Houston Dynamo match that stood out to us,address some injury and illness issues running through the team, and then turn our attention toward Saturday night's opponents, the Vancouver Whitecaps. Here to help us learn more about our new Western Conference foe is Jorge Mendoza from the Eighty Six Forever blog and co-host of the From the Backline podcast.

Jorge talks about the keys to Saturday night's match from the Vancouver standpoint and a little bit about why he's such a big Whitecaps fan.

And of course we have to get our (probably way off) predictions in just before we sign off. Enjoy!

Here's how it happened:

0:27- A recap of the win at Houston, injury and loan talk, and what to expect from Saturday night. We've got your match-ups to watch!

22:57- Jorge Mendoza jumps on and gives us the 411 from Vancouver's perspective, including his prediction and whether or not jet lag will play a role on Saturday.

38:07- Prediction time! We somehow all agree on the result, but the score lines are all over the map.

And that's it for this week's PawedCast! Check us out now on Blog Talk Radio or iTunes and coming soon to Stitcher. We'll be back next week to recap the Whitecaps and look ahead to a Montreal game that comes during international duty for multiple Lions.
