South Florida Soccer Round Up – May 14th to 19th

The Miami FC celebrates a goal against New York Red Bulls II. A recap of the South Florida Soccer world for the week of May 15, 2021.

There was plenty of reasons for soccer fans in and around the South Florida soccer world to be happy about this week.

The Miami FC got things off to a great start with a win away at New York Red Bulls II on Friday night. The game’s only goal came when Billy Forbes clipped a lovely ball through for János Löbe. The full back centered for Ballard who had his shot blocked but Jamaican international Speedy Williams rifled home a smart finish from the edge of the box.

 After a disappointing 2020 season, no one can blame The Miami FC for wanting to put last year behind them as quickly as possible.

Miami has a chance to do that Sunday night when they kick off their 2021 campaign against Loudoun United. It will be the first meeting between the two teams. They will get to see each other three more times later this season as Atlantic Division rivals.

A home opener against LA Galaxy. Great anticipation for a new season with promise, potential, and so many unknowns. It’s the launch of the 2021 Inter Miami CF capmaign in Major League Soccer, but it offers a sense of deja vu: We were in this place exactly one year and six weeks ago, when Inter Miami lost at DC United, headed home for its inaugural home match, and then the world stopped.

Inter Miami never did host LA Galaxy in its 2020 season, or play the Galaxy at all. COVID restrictions and a regionalized schedule update forced a lot of changes on a club that still has no true sense of normalcy.

But today’s match will really give the club a chance to change that for the first time.
