The talk of the town has been a teenager, Caden Clark, the ink was not yet dry on his first MLS deal when he scored a stunning volley at 47' facing Atlanta away, making him the 5th youngest to net in MLS lore and 3rd in team history, getting a Tweet from #2, Jozy Altidore.
Local product out of Fordham, Ryan Meara was back between the pipes and showed no signs of rust from missing 5 games due to a hip injury. He now has a pair of clean sheets on the year, 6 overall. His .750 save pct. has him in 7th place with those logging at least 7 starts, odd it is not minutes by Opta? In almost 2/3's of his games, 19 of 30, he has allowed one or no goals, astounding.
