Rowe and Jansson talk conceded goals, Ruan fined, OPD run, UNC’s Emily Fox working out with the Pride, and more.

MLS: Colorado Rapids at Orlando City SC Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, Mane Landers! Here we are, another week, another Wednesday. Here’s what you missed, or maybe you didn’t miss any of it, but let’s get to the links anyway.

Brian Rowe and Robin Jansson Talk Goals Conceded

Both goalkeeper Brian Rowe and defender Robin Jansson agreed that the goals Orlando City conceded could have been prevented. Instead of blaming each other, the team is watching film and looking at who could have done what differently to assist in preventing the goals. Jansson took full responsibility for making some “bad decisions” that he needs to work to improve, rather than hanging his head in defeat.

Ruan Fined for Embellishment

What do we know about Ruan? We know he’s fast. So what happens with even the slightest jersey pull at those speeds and in rainy conditions? You likely go down. Ruan did just that in the 78th minute against the Colorado Rapids. In true OCSC fashion, the MLS Disciplinary Committee found Ruan guilty of simulation/embellishment and has fined him an undisclosed amount. Side note: I love when Ruan passes to Ruan.

Orlando Pride Patches Announced

Continuing with the patches we’ve seen with Orlando City, the Orlando Pride revealed yesterday that they too will be participating. Check out the lineup for the home opener this weekend.

Emily Fox Works Out with Orlando Pride

Jordan Culver tweeted that Emily Fox has been working out with the Pride. UNC’s head coach stated the 19-year-old midfielder “is a dream for any team and any coach. She’s wonderfully coachable. I just absolutely love the kid.” Could she be joining the team? Well, the club would have to draft her when she’s eligible as she just completed her sophomore year at UNC.

Law Enforcement Torch Run

Orlando Police Department officers carried the torch in yesterday’s event. The mission of the run is to raise awareness and funds for the Special Olympics movement. Former Orlando City keeper and current officer Tally Hall ran to support the cause.

Free Kicks

Well, that’s it for me today. What are your plans for watching this weekend’s match? I’m not saying I’m planning to take over my complex’s movie room a few hours early, but I couldn’t deny it in a court of law.
