Our leader this round was HICKENHÖPPER FC, who scored 125 points. Captain Kei Kamara (NE, $9.8) led the team with a hat trick and 38 points, while his teammate Lee Nguyen (NE, $11.00) tallied four assists and 19 points of his own. Roman Alessandrini (LA, $10.6) rounded out the top three with 15 points on a goal and an assist. !BL4CKnRED still leads by 55 points.
A trio of goalkeepers kept clean sheets and led the position with 8 points — Matt Lampson (CHI, $4.8), Jon Kempin (LA, $4.9) and Cody Cropper (NE, $4.1).
Dave Romney (LA, $5.2) tallied a clean sheet and 11 points to lead the defenders. In a tie for second on 10 points were Jonathan Campbell (CHI, $5.4), who had a clean sheet, and Hernan Grana (DAL, $6.0), who scored a goal.
Lee Nguyen’s 19 points led the midfielders and tied for the overall lead, while Roman Alessandrini’s 15 points were good enough for second place. There was a tie for third on 11 points, with Bastian Schweinsteiger (CHI, $9.7) scoring a goal, and Sacha Kljestan (NYR, $11.6) pairing a goal and an assist.
Kei Kamara’s 19 points led all forwards and tied with Nguyen for the overall lead. Two Galaxy forwards finished second and third, with Gyasi Zardes ($8.4) tallying a goal and an assist for 12 points, and Emmanuel Boateng ($5.6) scoring a goal and 7 points.
NYC and SKC play twice, and everyone else plays once this round. Top-scoring goalkeeper Tim Melia (SKC, $5.9) is a no-brainer with games @NYC and @CLB, and I like Chris Mavinga (TOR, $6.0) in defense at home against SJ. Nicolas Lodeiro (SEA, $11.9) is a good bet in the midfield at home against LA, and you had better slap the armband on David Villa (NYC, $12.3) with home games against SKC and POR.
