The Lions finally got into the win column in 2018 this weekend, beating the New York Red Bulls in a back-and-forth thriller, 4-3. It was a fine season debut for Dom Dwyer, who went 64 minutes, scored a brace, and drove his friend Aurelien Collin nuts all day. We’ve got our breakdown of an eventful match that saw the return of Carlos Rivas and Tommy Redding to Orlando City Stadium — albeit in the enemy’s uniform.

The Orlando Pride were 10 minutes from a road draw while down seven starters — five to international duty and two to injury. But then Mallory Pugh happened and you can never predict when Mallory Pugh will happen. It was disappointing and now the pressure is on Tom Sermanni’s club. We discuss.

OCSC Assistant Coach Miles Joseph joins us to talk about working with Jason Kreis, how the staff divvies up responsibilities, scouting the next opponent, and much more.
