After being unable to secure deals with three MLS clubs, the Battery front office decided it was best to cancel the yearly event, rather than put out a less than average field.

* Didn't show it in the last game, but DeLeon has serious wheels. Had one decent run with the ball, but looked blistering on a couple runs without.

* Not so impressed with Rozeboom this time around. Big effort, but looked more hurried in his efforts and certainly more wasteful with the ball.
