Defender Greg Janicki takes the Man Of The Match Award for his goal scoring performance against FC Edmonton on May 7 in Indianapolis. The big man, in the box for a free kick, deflected a cross from Niki Patterson into the net with the bottom of his boot for Indy’s only goal in the draw with Edmonton.
Janicki’s center back partner Colin Falvey was recognized for his defensive performance with the second highest rating. Falvey’s 7.10 was short of the 7.25 rating that the MOTM received from match reviewers.
Indy’s forwards and wide players struggled in the match against the ‘Montons, a strong defensive side that is starting to build a consistent attack.
Fan optimism waned a bit after the result, with expectations for their finish in the Spring standings dropping from 2.60 to 3.60.
