Union-Orlando City: And so it ends...

UNION (4-2-3-1) 
Blake Gaddis-Elliott-Marquez-Fabinho Medunjanin-Bedoya
Bench: McCarthy, Onyewu, Wijnaldum, Carroll, Simpson, Alberg, Pontius 

Orlando City (4-3-3) 
Bench: Fenlason, Toia, Redding, Barry, Carrasco, Nocerino, DaSilva 

- It’s the same thing over and over again with slight variation. This week’s wrinkle is Marcus Epps on the wing. Same backline, same central midfield pairing.

- Here’s a nuance: Brian Carroll is on the bench. He’ll be retiring today after 15 years.

- The interest level in this game from Orlando City is minimal at best. Kaka, who isn’t retiring from soccer but just from the three-year mess that is the lions, said his goodbyes. Cyle Larin, who appears to have one foot in Europe, isn’t traveling either. Even Joe Bendik, who has played all 33 games this season, is sitting thanks to a concussion in favor of Earl Edwards. So yeah, same mess of ill-fitting pieces. is interesting, maybe.
