FC Dallas MX saw its winning streak snapped over the weekend as they suffered a 1-0 defeat at Gavilanes FC. Despite the loss, FCD-MX remains a top the Group 12 Table, but sees its lead trimmed to two points.
In other news FC Dallas MX also hosted tryouts for their Liga TDP squad:
They usually have tryouts long before the start of the winter break, but for some reason, they are just now looking at trialists. Based in the suburbs of Monterrey, there is a ton of talent to be found in that part of Mexico (there are many academies and clubs in that area), so the club should be able to find help.
