MLS: New England Revolution at Philadelphia Union Derik Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

With a score of 109 points, Dukes SC led the league this round.

Olsen’s Army extended the slim overall lead to nine points.

Positional Leaders


Portland’s Steve Clark ($5.0) saved a penalty on the way to 11 points and the goalkeeping lead. Behind him, the pair of Brad Guzan (ATL, $7.8) and Daniel Vega (SJ, $6.0) each posted a clean sheet on the way to 9 points. D.C.’s Bill Hamid ($7.7) conceded an own goal and scored 0 points.


Jack Elliott (PHI, $7.7) tallied a goal and a clean sheet over two games on the way to 17 points, leading all defenders, while Nick Lima (SJ, $5.1) did the same in just one game for 13 points. Auston Trusty (PHI, $6.7) put up a clean sheet and 12 points to round out the top three. Leonardo Jara ($7.7) led the DCU back line with 7 points, followed by Steven Birnbaum ($8.4) and Frederic Brillant ($7.4) with 4 points, and Donovan Pines ($5.8) with 3.


The duo of Haris Medunjanin (PHI, $9.3), with two assists, and Ezequiel Barco (ATL, $8.9), with a goal and an assist, split the midfield lead on 15 points. Alejandro Bedoya (PHI, $8.4) scored 14 points on the strength of an assist. The United featured Luciano Acosta ($9.9) with 9 points, Paul Arriola ($7.9) with 7, Lucas Rodriguez ($8.0) with 4, the pair of Junior Moreno ($8.0) and Russell Canouse ($6.5) with 3, and Ulises Segura ($4.1) with 1.


Kacper Przybylko (PHI, $5.7) scored two goals in two games for 16 points. Behind him, Josef Martinez (ATL, $9.7) scored a brace for 14 points, while Houston’s Mauro Manotas ($11.2) did the same for 13 points. Wayne Rooney ($10.5) was the only scoring D.C. forward with 9 points.

Looking Ahead

Eight teams play twice this round: Atlanta, Toronto, Columbus, the Galaxy, Chicago, New England, the Red Bulls, and Montreal. Games start Wednesday night. In goal, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I like David Ousted in goal off the back of a clean sheet at LA, and home matches against New England and Minnesota. I’m taking Miles Robinson (ATL, $7.8) in defense with home matches against Toronto and Orlando, and Jonathan Dos Santos (LAG, $10.9) in midfield at Columbus and home against NYCFC. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (LAG, $13.2) is a nailed on forward.
