Orlando City finally had its winning streak snapped but we take some solace in the fact the Lions were able to go toe-to-toe with one of the league’s top teams, even though a soft early penalty got the visitors off on the front foot. The Lions played much better in the second half of the match and we’re here to break it all down, including our Man of the Match, thoughts on the officiating as a whole, and yes, that mess at the end.

We’re also talking about the Pride’s outstanding road swing through Utah and Portland and the team’s five-game unbeaten run. Joining us to tell us more about it is none other than Pride and Australia star Alanna Kennedy. She has played a lot of soccer in 2018 already even though only a few games of that were played in an Orlando uniform and she talks to us about her national team, the 2018 Pride, winning in Portland, and more.

We also answer our listener questions in our Ask The Mane Land PawedCast mailbag, and give you our key match-ups and score predictions for Orlando City’s match Friday night at Toronto FC.
