DeAndre Yedlin, B+
[KEN] The captain in Messi’s absence lived up to his responsibilities, working hard on both ends of the pitch, defending his teammates and communicating with teammates and officials alike. Yedlin’ s pace and experience served him well tracking back to snuff out counter attacks, and he became a ball carrier and distributor when the Herons stopped trying to outkick Orlando’s coverage and instead began using the field’s width to move the ball forward on the wings.
[MATT] I'm not that impressed with Yedlin but his big benefit to the squad on Sunday was communication. I don't know that I see his play as being extraordinary, but keeping things in line with the team during a playoff push and a rivalry match is nothing to sneeze at.
