Longer practice than usual
Today was a bit longer than usual, but that was expected. With this week’s game on Sunday, they can afford another hard day of practice that they needed. They worked a lot on set pieces which is routine for Friday and also closing down on defenders. The team is really wanting to win this game and knows that it will be tough, but are ready for the challenge.
Fabian Castillo did not train today, however Oscar Pareja said he is ready to go for this weekend, but starting this weekend is still a big question mark. Walker Zimmerman did not train today, but Oscar kept him out as a precaution and he is expected to play this Sunday.
Keel is making progress
One player who is really working hard to get into the eighteen is Stephen Keel. After missing most of the season with a foot injury, Keel has to be thinking that he could be making the eighteen quite a bit with all the absences coming up. It would not be a shocker if he traveled this weekend, but he may not play.
