Major League Soccer team FC Dallas (based in Frisco, TX) leads the league standings after 20 games in the 34 game regular season. Having accumulated 35 points they lead perennial leaders DC United and LA Galaxy and still have two games in hand.
FC Dallas started out the season with three wins for a very strong start. They have remained in contention throughout the season, and are presently on a four game winning streak. They have won 10, lost 5 and tied 5 games to put them on top.
The team’s scoring sensation, Fabian Castillo has scored 8 goals and recorded 6 assists. A player from Colombia, South America, Castillo has been getting progressively better with the team and has found his stride. His captivating runs at goal often end with him dribbling around two or three defenders, leaving them behind as he twists and turns, bolting through gaps and shooting on goal.
FC Dallas veteran Blaz Perez (also on Panama’s National Team) has brought Castillo along over the last three years and the combination of Perez’ experience with Castillo’s speed has caused opponents to come up short on defense over and over. A deep scoring bench sees players such as Mauro Diaz, and Tesho Akindele (Canadian National Team) making big contributions as well. Overall, 9 players have scored this season and remain a major challenge to opponents.
Our team’s next game is today Saturday, July 25 at 8 p.m. CDT at Toyota Stadium in Frisco.
