Last match, United didn’t have the start it wanted. The persistence and mental strength of the group came through, though, finding a way to grab a point from the match.

“Energy-wise, everyone understands it wasn’t perfect,” Assistant Coach Preston Burpo said. “Everyone understands there have been a couple games we start off a little slow, and we’d like to change the mentality of that from the get-go.”
