PawedCast Episode 63: NYCFC Review and Montreal Impact Preview

We’re breaking down Orlando City’s 2-1 win over New York City FC, Orlando Pride’s 2-1 loss to Washington Spirit, plus OCB, the international break, the USMNT, and more!

MLS: New York City FC at Orlando City SC Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

It's been a minute since we've been able to celebrate Orlando City winning all three points with you, constant listener, but we get to do just that this week after the Lions dispatched New York City FC, 2-1, over the weekend. Forgive us if we go in-depth into the match. We didn't have a guest this week and still gave you more than an hour of our takes on the Lions and their continued mastery of their fellow 2015 expansion club.

We also talked Orlando Pride, who unfortunately saw the wrong end of a 2-1 score line at home against the Washington Spirit last Friday night. Not all of the Olympians have returned yet, and the Pride attack was a bit toothless against the NWSL's top club. The playoffs are a remote dream now for the Pride but Tom Sermanni is bringing in reinforcements anyway, in the form of forward Lisa De Vanna and defender McKenzie Berryhill.

And we're also talking Orlando City B, the club's only team that is currently above the playoff line. Can OCB maintain the spot with just one home game remaining in the last five matches? The young Lions' form hasn't been great since Tony Rocha and Mikey Ambrose were promoted to the senior squad, and things won't be easy with Pierre Da Silva on international duty.

We also talk about the international break, with Cyle Larin and Kevin Molino going off to represent their countries, and what it means for the Montreal match. And who can resist a little USMNT talk? Not us, apparently.
