- Both teams looked very un-imaginitive throughout the half. The lone goal came on a bit of a broken play and a fortunate bounce for Atlanta. They might have to get one or two more of those to get the win.
- Atlanta's defense looked shaky at times, and it's our guess that Rochester will be coming full force in the second half. That's going to put the onus on the Atlanta midfield to control the game by keeping possession and connecting on passes.
- I have a sinking feeling that the Silverbacks will still try and play the long-ball, which should get them into trouble at some point in the half.
