Happy 4th

That’s five consecutive wins for the Boys in Blue in all competitions as NYC turned on the style in the second half to defeat the Western Conference's third-placed team, Seattle.

Building off a grandstand finish vs. the Conference leaders Philadelphia on Saturday, Dome Torrent’s men flew out of the blocks in the first half on Wednesday, with presentable chances for Alexandru Mitriță, Ismael Tajouri-Shradi and Taty Castellanos but a combination of Stefan Frei and some narrow misfires meant that the game was in the balance at the interval.

It took 12 second half minutes for Moralez to finally force the ball over the line, by sheer force of will seemingly, and from there NYCFC never looked back, adding two more through Jesus Medina and Eben Ofori before the night was through.

All in all, the perfect way to go into a Holiday, especially with another Bronx outing to come on Sunday vs. Portland…
