The regular season starts in six days. Since December 10, 2013, we signed 12 brand new faces, six of which started last night’s match against the Seattle Sounders. It has been a preseason full of learning new names, creating relationships and finding rhythm. And last night, there were glimpses.
“I thought at times we looked on the same page,” said Assistant Coach Chad Ashton. “That’s starting to come; that rhythm part, that cohesiveness.”
