There are 40 days between the first day of the 2015 MLS playoffs on October 28 and the MLS championship on December 6. Orlando City may not be in the playoffs this year, but I thought it would be a good opportunity to reflect on the year that was 2015 and the highs and lows. In addition, I'll be including my evaluation of each player from the first team roster.
Day 1: Best Match of the Season
My vote for the best match goes to the May 17 victory at home over the LA Galaxy. This was an important victory for a number of reasons. First and foremost it was Orlando City's first home win in an MLS league match. The 2015 Galaxy did not boast the same roster that had won the MLS Cup in 2014, but they were still defending league champions, and the win was a much-needed boost of confidence for the club and a huge release of exuberance for the fans as the team finally took full points from a home win.

Do you agree this was the best match of the season? If not, what do you think was Orlando City's best match in 2015?
