Rochester Rhinos credit resilience to historic unbeaten start

Rochester Rhinos captain Tony Walls
The Rochester Rhinos have been one of the most consistent successes of the 2015 USL season. Rochester’s unbeaten run is one of the club’s best in its history, just three games shy of matching the 14-game streak during the 1998 A-League campaign.

Captain and midfielder Tony Walls credits the team’s resilience toward this run, which sees the club at 7-0-4 atop the Eastern Conference and 3-0-0 at Sahlen’s Stadium heading into Saturday’s home game against Louisville City FC.

“I think the guys have bought into the formations and positions, which we try to switch up,” Walls said. “We’re an organized and solid team. That can wear other teams down and make it tough for them going up against our defense. They run out of gas offensively.”
