NYCFC, Honors Even
Two games, two points for NYCFC through tests vs. Orlando and D.C. in 2019.
24,000+ were present inside the stadium for the first home match of Season 5 and despite the lack of goals, the crowd was treated to an even and exciting matchup vs. Ben Olsen’s side.
Head Coach Dome Torrent felt as though both teams had solid cases to say that they deserved all three points, meaning a draw was probably the fair result on the balance of play.
Per Torrent: "It was a tie game. And both teams deserve to maybe win the game. And the result is fair for both teams. But it’s not a good result for us because when you play in the Yankee Stadium you have to win the game.”
D.C. definitely started out on the front foot for the open 15’, but Dome would’ve been encouraged by the way his charges grew into the game and took control of the ball, especially after the break when NYCFC were in the ascendancy.
However, both goalkeepers were in no mood to give up clean sheets…
