First Half Summary

What an electric atmosphere at Subaru Park. The building was shaking with anticipation, and as expected, the away fans filled their section well. It absolutely felt like a playoff match. Two changes into the lineup today, Mbaizo and Miro were out, Powell and NJ product Paxten Aaronson earned the start! After the match, Jim stated that Miro and Mbaizo were in the league's health protocol, but he would not provide anymore information.


Had an injury almost immediately for Philly. Looked like Jose knocked knees with another player, and he gingerly got up after a few moments on the field. The Red Bulls then earned their first corner, but it ultimately went out
