Philly.com reports that Curtin wants more than just a playoff game.

MLS released some of its 22 Under 22. Derrick Jones came in at 22, and Mark McKenzie came in at 21.

They say Curtin isn’t good at tactics. Maybe he should attend this course.


Here are some scores from yesterday in men’s matches:

  • Temple 3-1 NJIT Highlanders
  • La Salle 2-2 Saint Joseph’s
  • Colgate 0-1 Lehigh University
  • University of Delaware 1-0 Elon

Highlight of the day


  1. Regarding the 22 Under 22: Trusty, Fontana, and Real were all included in the master list.
    The top 10 will be released soon…my guess is Trusty will be in it giving the Union 3 players in the “22”

  2. Another tidbit to add per a Tannenwald article…
    Henan Jianye, whom Dockal will return to after his loan here, are in second to last place and in danger of relegation. I wonder if that drops his market value if the Union wish (and they should) to make his stay more permanent. Could also mean other teams look to make a move for him too.
