Lineup news & prediction
A slew of players have question marks over their head this week, but let’s start with the certainties.
- Tony Beltran, Jordan Allen and Taylor Peay are all out. Allen’s got to be getting reasonably close, while I’m not really sure about Peay.
- Marcelo Silva could be out, as he’s listed as questionable. I’m thinking he’ll play, though, because...
- David Horst has been apparently ruled out with a knee injury, which is not exactly what we wanted to hear.
- If Silva and Horst are out, do we see Shawn Barry? Here’s the thing, though. He’s also listed as questionable.
- I bet we see Danilo Acosta and Justen Glad on the back line. Interestingly, that’s also a pairing I vaguely recall seeing at the academy level. I could be wrong.
- But wait! Demar Phillips is also listed as questionable, as is Aaron Herrera.
- Let’s assume everyone questionable is out. That means we could see a lineup of...
Rimando; Lennon, Glad, Acosta, Henley; Beckerman, Kreilach; Plata, Rusnak, Savarino; L. Silva
