Points were way down across the league this round, and sHarkes’s total of 66 set the pace.
Check Joself is still the overall leader, though their lead is now down to five points.
Kansas City’s Tim Melia ($5.9) kept a clean sheet on the way to a position-leading 11 points. Just behind him was the 10-point duo of Tomas Romero (LA, $4.7), who kept a clean sheet, and Carlos Coronel (NYR, $7.9), who saved a penalty. For United, Bill Hamid ($7.0) scored 3 points.
Eddie Segura (LA, $6.9) led the defenders with a clean sheet, an assist, and 12 points. Behind him the pair of Walker Zimmerman (NSH, $8.1), with a clean sheet, and D.C.’s Andy Najar ($7.0), with two assists, scored 11 points. The remaining DCU defenders were Donovan Pines ($5.8) with 3 points, Brendan Hines-Ike ($6.4) with 2, and Antonio Alfaro ($4.4) with 1.
Ignacio Aliseda (CHI, $5.1) scored 17 points on two goals and an assist, leading the midfielders and all players. Behind him was the goalscoring duo of Andy Rose (VAN, $6.4) and DCU’s own Kevin Paredes ($4.9), with 11 points each. The rest of D.C.’s midfield featured Junior Moreno ($6.6) with 8 points, followed by both Julian Gressel ($8.4) and Paul Arriola ($7.3) with 7, Yamil Asad ($5.8) with 6, Russel Canouse ($5.9) with 4, and Moses Nyeman ($4.0) with 1.
United’s Griffin Yow ($4.0) tallied a goal and two assists on the way to 14 points, leading the forwards in just 14 minutes of action. In the rear view was the Metros pair of Fabio Gomes Netto ($6.3) with a goal and an assist, and Patryk Klimala ($6.2) with two assists, with 11 points. The other DCU forwards were Ola Kamara ($9.1) with 9 points, Nigel Robertha ($6.5) with 8, and Adrien Perez ($4.5) with 2.
DCU, Kansas City, Miami, San Jose, and Portland are on bye, while everyone else plays once. In goal, Matt Turner (NE, $7.6) looks good vs. Toronto, and in defense I like Alex Roldan (SEA, $8.0) vs. Houston. Carles Gil (NE, $13.1) is nailed on in the midfield, and I like Daryl Dike (ORL, $8.4) at forward @ Chicago.
