    An unfortunate point to note about the Bethlehem loss.
    .
    It is the worst score line in the almost for year history of the club.
    .
    There may have been more thorough dominations, Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh during the regular season last year, but this was the worst set of goal numbers.

    • I went out and didn’t see the game. Were any of the Union players there (Real, Mbaizo, Ngalina) or were they possibly resting to make the trip to San Jose?
