Last week we learned that FCD extended the contracts of three players including Tesho Akindele. Now we learn that it had been in the works for some time here. Good to hear that the club was looking long term.
When asked about the own goal in the first half, Oscar Pareja was quick to say that you create your luck in this game. He was right.
While the U-18s didn't make it to the national quarterfinals, the U-16s (which is a really good team) will be hosting New England soon. This group has at least two future HGPs on it.
Once again it was one of those night where Fabian Castillo could do whatever he wanted on the field.

Matt Doyle's usual piece looks at all the action from this weekend. I'll say this, Rivalry Week was a pretty big success in the league.
