MLS: Orlando City SC at FC Cincinnati Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Orlando City needed a win and some help from New York City FC on Sunday but as Judge Smails said in Caddyshack, “You’ll get nothing and like it!” The playoff hopes ended with both the Lions drawing 1-1 at FC Cincinnati — and they were fortunate to get that in the end — and a win over NYCFC by the New England Revolution. We’re here to discuss the draw in Ohio and how not going to the playoffs is really not our preferred outcome to the 2019 season.

We’ve got another draw to discuss too, as the Pride and Sky Blue played to a 1-1 final at Red Bull Arena. Not marking Carli Lloyd properly seems like a mistake and my evidence is Lloyd’s tying goal late in Sunday’s match as the Pride blew an opportunity to gain ground on eighth place and to sweep the three-game set against the New Jersey side.

The OCB Minute is a happy one this week, as the Young Lions broke a 10-game losing streak and a 15-game winless skid, winning on the road for the first time in 2019. Congrats to Will Bagrou and all the Young Lions.

We also go through our listener mail and give you our key match-ups and predictions for Orlando City’s season finale at home against the Chicago Fire this Sunday.

Here’s how show No. 180 went down:

0:15 - Our discussion of Orlando City’s draw in Cincinnati, Man of the Match picks, and we’re really not sure what’s going to happen in terms of the coaching staff, especially if the Lions fall again on Sunday.

42:38 - The Pride were moments away from a win in one of their best performances of the year. Sure, it was just Sky Blue, but that was more like the kind of performance we want to see.

1:05:59 - Our listener questions and our brief preview of Sunday’s match against Chicago.
