Akeem Ward - D (Spring Addition)
Luke Haakenson - M

Despite losses Jays return some key attackers in Ricky Lopez-Espin, Myles Englis and Noah Franke who came on late in the season to become a integral part of the Jays system. Diego Bacellar, who played sparingly last season, should get major minutes this Spring with hopes to crack the line-up.

Jays will rely heavily on midfield duo Ricardo Perez and Joel Rydstand, with possible attacking midfield duties going to US U20 Evan Waldrep who can also slot deep.

In defense Jays will count on Lucas Stauffer, who is team's most technical and gifted player. Stauffer slotted in at LB last year and could play there again, but also could move into an attacking mid or wide role.

Center of defense will be anchored by Portland Timbers youth product Peter Prescott who played meaningful minutes last season. He will be joined by Mitch LaGro who is coming off a red-shirt, and Felix Kollmanther. Freshman Akeem Ward, a spring transfer, could be an option at fullback. The Diminutive speedster will excel in Bolowich's attacking back system.

Long time back-up goalkeeper Michael Kluver has excellent athleticism and should be in pole position in the spring. Do not discount Jacob Rooth from net-minder duties.

Rumors that both red-shirt freshman Bryce Gibson and Conor Ramlo impressed throughout last fall. Gibson, a 6-4 striker and central defender in high school, has all the tools for a breakout year. Ramlo is a sturdy defender who has excellent leadership skills and could provide the Jays an option at CB if they prefer LaGro out wide.

I will have a Spring preview on WBR once Spring schedule is released with new additions. Expect 2-4 more players coming in this Fall.

Ethan Finley had the assist for US national team 1-0 win on a pinpoint cross from the wing to Jose Altidor for a header in the 89th minute.

Jozy was really complimentary of not only the pass, but of Finlay (with an a) in general as a player. He's really come on strong lately in the MLS too. Good to see things working out for Ethan. He's a good dude. And a Packers fan.

Got hammered both games. As in lost badly. Didn't score a goal.

Wow. 0-5 and 0-4. And one was a community college. Guess this will be more of a rebuilding year than we hoped.

2-0 win last night over UNO at Caniglia. Both goals scored in the last 10 minutes by RLE and Franke. Rooth (?) was in net for the first ~75 minutes; Kluver came in to close out the game. Rooth played fine but didn't look great handling balls in the air on corner kicks / set pieces.

The starting lineup was something like :

— — — — — — Lopez-Espin — — — — — —

— — — — — — — Englis — — — — — — — 
— — ? — — Perez — — Rydstrand — — 
— — — — — — — Waldrep — — — — — — — 

Stauffer — LaGro — Prescott — Paye
— — — — — — — Rooth — — — — — — — 

I know that's only 10 guys but I can't think of who else got on. Someone else can correct me.

Stauffer was great, as usual. He was replaced at about 75' by Timbers Academy and new transfer Stefan Wutte who, I think, got the assist on one of the CU goals.

In general the game was a little physical but nothing too chippy. Two yellow cards given, I think, by a good officiating crew. Fingers crossed for an annual derby matchup.

I know it's spring but it's nice to see we beat someone.
