The regular season is over. Done and dusted. While it's impressive that Raiders United ran the table, their undefeated record means next to nothing on Wednesday night. Nor does the loss Stallions suffered at their hands in Week 3. Ultimately, 60 minutes of soccer will decide which team walks away from 2019 with their heads held high.
It's been almost two months since Hurst handed Euless their only loss on the season; a match which got out of hand quickly after a couple of defensive miscues. The Horsemen are a different team now. Their defense has stabilized, surrendering only two goals in that span. They've grown in their identity as a blue-collar team that battles for every ball.
But we'd be remiss to say that Raiders United, winners of the Top-of-Table Award in 2019, aren't favored to claim the title. This is one of the most dominant clubs we've seen in recent years. Individually, they're the most talented team in the league. Tactically, they're the most complete. If they play their game, Stallions won't stand a chance. But soccer is a game of imperfections, and there's no telling what will happen when the ball hits the pitch on April 3.
Here's how the matchup breaks down…
