Another week produced another victory at Orlando City Stadium and we’re here to talk about Saturday’s 2-0 win over the Colorado Rapids. We’re breaking down what the Pids tried to turn into a sleepy Saturday afternoon but actually turned into an exciting OCSC victory, including our picks for Man of the Match.

We also discussed the Pride’s 3-1 loss at North Carolina Courage, and OCB’s 0-0 draw at home last Thursday against Saint Louis FC. Speaking of the young Lions, we’ve got their gaffer! OCB Head Coach Anthony Pulis returns to the PawedCast to discuss the first quarter of the USL season, the team’s current two-week hiatus between games, his surprises at striker this season, what he’s learned from Jason Kreis, and more.

And there are not one, but two upcoming games to talk about. Orlando City hits the road this week and hopes that it doesn’t hit back. The Lions are off to face Toronto FC and the Houston Dynamo in the next few days and we have our key match-ups and score predictions for those matches.


Here’s how the show unfolded:

0:12- Carlos Rivas and Kaká came off the bench to lead the Lions to victory on Saturday and we want to talk about it. Plus, the Pride, OCB, Ashlyn Harris’ postgame remarks, and Orlando City Stadium was selected to host a World Cup qualifier!

38:32- Anthony Pulis reprises his guest starring role here on the PawedCast and the OCB coach gives us his thoughts on the team’s slow start, better play of late, the season so far, and where the young Lions are headed.

55:33- Our key match-ups and score predictions for not one, but two huge road games against two teams that are unbeaten at home — Toronto FC and the Houston Dynamo.

Stop by next week as we recap two matches and look ahead to team’s return to Orlando to face Sporting Kansas City.
