It has taken several games to do it, but Union SC has climbed back up into 2nd place in the BSL standings after a 3 game losing streak several games ago dropped the club out of playoff contention. The last time the Blues were in 2nd, the club went up against St. Louis in what was a match between the top two clubs at the time. In that match the St. Louis Cure buried Union Southern California by the score of 4-0. It was a heart wrenching defeat that solidified St. Louis' lead in the league. Now comes the much awaited rematch.
The first key to the game is to hope the Cure don't build up a quick lead. The clubs RSL players hit the pitch first as well as Patrick Nyarko. A close score by the conclusion of Thursday would work wonders for Union SC. The early afternoon game on Saturday is the next big scenario. The Blues have DeRosario, Casey, and maybe White hitting the pitch and a few scores could set the wheels in motion to grab a lead before the bulk of the MLS matches take place. A win would be huge over the Cure!
