In short, Ithaca is a strong, fast, disciplined, and talented team. It showed up on the field and in the final score, 38-0.
One giant factor was field position in the entire first half. While there were some expections, MLS played on a field that was 90 yards or so long. Ithaca's field was about 35 yards long. We made it hard for ourselves to get down the field and to keep Ithaca out of the end zone.
