Before the season, Will Bruin wanted to score eight goals. After taking just 14 games to accomplish that feat, he set the mark at double-digits. With Sunday’s tally against D.C. United, it looks like the striker will once again need to recalibrate his expectations.

Sunday night kicked off a huge week with three Eastern Conference home matches in seven days and nine points on the line.

Fortunately, it got off to a great start with the 4-0 win over D.C. United in front of 18,871 fans. The team played great. We could not have asked for a better way to start this stretch. It was one of our best performances of the season and it came at a great time. We need to start making up ground on the teams sitting atop the East and we want to build a bigger gap on the teams behind us.

To have success in a lone-forward system, strong play from the wing is a must. On Sunday night, the Houston Dynamo hit the nail on the head.
