We do not want to talk about last week. If you predicted a goal, you got a bonus point last week since we should have had at least one. That was everybody.

Here are the current rankings:

Taylor 20
Phil 18
Mohammad 17
Cody 16
Nathan 15

It is still anybody's season.

Scoring breakdown for the season will be implemented using the following:

1 for predicting the correct result

3 points bonus for predicting the exact score

3 point bonus (optional) for nailing the correct scorers for FC Dallas only.

Maximum available weekly points are 7 points.

Here are our predictions. What do you think happens tonight?

Name Result FCD RSL Comments

Becky Chabot

Ben Lyon Win 3 1 RSL wilts in the heat after their 4th game in 11 days. Diaz, Castillo, and Urruti are your scorers.
Cody Gamond Win 2 0 Gruezo gets his first and Urruti gets back to it.
Drew Epperley Win 2 1 Returning home gets the team going with a pair of early goals from Castillo and Barrios. The defense once again struggles on a set piece but is able to hold on for the three points.
Jared Tilley Win 2 0 FCD jumps out early behind a Barrios goal. They get a second goal on a counter attack from Castillo. We are celebrate and are all happy for Fabian.
Jason Poon Win 2 0 Fabi does Fabi things.
Mohammad Bushnaq Win 2 1 Castillo grabs that imaginary monkey off his back, juggles it a couple of times, and finishes twice en route to a solid FC Dallas victory at home.
Nathan Hill Win 2 1 FCD gets the benefits of the refs in this one. PK from Diaz and a goal from Barrios are enough to seal the win.
Phil Luetchford Win 3 1 At home, Dallas is 19W-2L-6D since the beginning of last season. We should be expecting to win every home game. FC Dallas is clearly capable of scoring multiple times in a game, like at KC (:scream: :cry:). Real Salt Lake is coming off a midweek game, so they will be tired and possibly rotating starters. But watch out, it could be a trap game as RSL leads the league with 1.89 goals per away game. I think they fall short of that mark, with only one goal via Plata, while Zim, Diaz, and Mikey score for the good guys.
Ryan Scalon Win 1 0 FC Dallas pulls off a good solid win at home with Diaz getting the game's only goal. The game is sluggish overall but overall FCD controls proceedings.
Scott Hiney

Per the agreement of our loan policy with FC Dallas' front office, Scott Hiney will forfeit his predictions until the loan comes to an end.
Taylor Hester Win 2 0 FCD is mad after the KC result and is at home. I think this will end well. Urruti finally gets on the scoresheet again. So does Barrios.
