Fifteen of the scheduled 24 games for the Sidekicks will feature against direct conference rivals. The Sidekicks will play the Kansas Comets a total of six times, the Ambush five times, and the Wave four times.
Head coach Pablo Da Silva has a little under two months to prepare for the upcoming season. Changes started with new players added to their ranks via tryout or former players announced like Billy O’Dwyer. The team also announced the release of their captain Freddy Moojen this past August. The team will look to put their past performances behind them and create a new change ahead of their new season.
Da Silva and Jesse Llamas, as the new Dallas Sidekicks President, need change for the team. As a result, Da Silva and Llamas will be looking to work on a memorable season for players, staff, and undoubtedly the fans.
With just under two months left and numerous hours of work to be done, the Sidekicks will look to become that team they once were and win games in the MASL to bring the playoffs to the Allen Event Center.
