Week 15: Back at it!

With the international break over, it is time for assessing where we stand. After starting the season on an unimaginable tear of excellent form (and benefitting from good luck, gotta have some luck), Cumberland Athletic dashed off 5 wins. That was extended to 7 wins and 1 loss. Since then, however, it has been uneven, charitably: 1 win, 4 losses and 1 tie. Tied for 2nd place (third place on PPG) with 2 other teams, CAC is needing to find new life. It is hoped the international break will heal some wounds and form will return. The playoffs loom and that is where the shiny stuff lives!

This week we are at home against Second City another tied-for-2nd place team. So, a 6-pointer! Roll Wild Marys! Roll!!! Campground stadium will be booming with noise welcoming home from international duty Robbie Keane, Michael Bradley and Jordan Allen.

Ribeiro (ORL)
Keane (LAG) Captain
Gonzalez (LAG)
Davies (NER)
Nguyen (NER)
Tierney (NER)
Rose (SEA)
