A perrennial playoff team, Gateway United suffered its worst season in club history in 2013. While it wasn't a disaster by any means and even finishing with a winning record in the MCQ, the club failed to make any post season action. Did the club underachieve last season? The Saints owner thinks so and protected 4 players from the old roster before the draft even started.
If we have learned anything from previous years, it's don't underestimate the new club. The last 2 BSL Cup Finals have featured first year clubs at the time. Can Ohio continue the trend? The Toffees kept it local by signing 4 Columbus players to the squad, and one former Crew favorite in Chad Marshall.
