There really is nothing better than a big win to kick off a new week.
// FC Dallas //
Here is our recap from last night's big win over Orlando City. FCD really never looked threatened in this one as Orlando struggled to get shots on the defense.
Plenty of good stuff came out of last night's game as the entire attack really looked alive in this one.
Again, at times it looked easy last night for FCD.
A lot of selfless play out there from the FCD attack as the best example was easily the Fabian Castillo goal in stoppage time when Tesho Akindele (wisely I might add) laid the ball off for the Colombian.
15 games at home without a loss is no easy task but this group has definitely proven that they love to play in front of their fans.
Oh and by the way, FCD is back at the top of the standings too.
And from the other side of the pitch, here is how folks in Orlando saw things.
// MLS //
There was a lot to take in over this holiday weekend, including the three games last night on Independence Day. There is a lot of talk in this one about that Colorado defense too that got a shutout at home.
Like we mentioned above, the draw helped push FCD to the top of the standings but the Colorado side does still have the edge on the points per game department.
Another weekend recap of sorts here from the World Wide Leader. Still, some interesting comments here on how FCD is on the rise at the moment.
