FC Dallas is halfway through their tough month of April but now the big test awaits them with three straight road games.

No Matt Hedges, no Mauro Diaz and no Carlos Gruezo....so no problem right? Yeah, FCD didn't look great at times last night but they got the result that they needed.
We know he is at least the first Homegrown in FCD history to wear the captain's armband for a game, he may also be the first one in MLS.
If your name is Mauro, you score goals like that. Or something along those lines is what I said last night when Mauro Rosales scored the game-winner.
That is just how this league works at times, I thought SKC's defense looked pretty solid for the majority of the game but two chances given up allowed FCD to get the points.
Did you know SKC was unbeaten on the road so far this season? Yeah, now they are not.

Matt Doyle checks in with his usual weekend recap as he looks at the weekend around the league. We saw Jermaine Jones return with a goal, Didier Drogba return with a goal and some kid named Jordan Morris score a goal.
Boy, Sunday afternoon was a crap storm for the officials in the Orlando-New England match. Yikes.
It was another snow game in Colorado for Jones to shine in. All of a sudden the Rapids are actually winning.
You can't blame Drogba that much for not wanting to play on turf.
Daaaang. Over 20k for a USL game is impressive no matter the location. Really cool though to see a new club like Cincy take the city by storm like that. It also didn't hurt being a rivalry game with Louisville. Either way, awesome stuff.
