oldergoaler cruised to the league lead this round with 123 points, 18 better than anyone else.

BL4CKnRED still leads overall, with the lead down to 18 points.

Positional Leaders

Goalkeepers

James Pantemis (MTL, $5.6) set the pace for the goalkeepers with a clean sheet and 10 points. Just behind him was the nine-point pair of Brad Guzan (ATL, $8.5) and Nick Marsman (MIA, $7.3), each of whom had a clean sheet. For DCU, Bill Hamid ($7.1) scored 8 points.

Defenders

Alan Franco (ATL, $6.7) added a clean sheet to his three assists for 21 points, leading all defenders and all players, ahead of Christian Makoun (MIA, $6.0), who paired a goal with a clean sheet on the way to 17 points. John Tolkin (NYR, $7.3) rounded out the top three with a clean sheet, an assist, and 13 points. For D.C., Andy Najar ($8.3) and Steven Birnbaum ($4.2) led with 8 points each, followed by Antonio Alfaro ($4.6) with 2 points, and the pair of Donovan Pines ($5.3) and Joseph Mora ($4.0) with 1 point each.

Midfielders

San Jose’s Chofis ($8.2) scored twice for 17 points, sharing the midfield lead with Albert Rusnak (RSL, $10.6), who tallied a goal and two assists. Just behind them was Jesus Medina (NYC, $7.6), who added a goal to two assists on the way to 16 points. Julian Gressel ($9.7) led the United midfield with 7 points; ahead of the pair of Edison Flores ($6.5) and Felipe Martins ($4.2) with 6; both Jaime Moreno ($6.4) and Kevin Paredes ($5.2) with 4, the trio of Paul Arriola ($7.1), Russell Canouse ($5.5), and Drew Skundrich ($4.0) with 3, and Moses Nyeman ($4.0) with 1.

Forwards

D.C.’s Ola Kamara’s ($10.4) hat trick set him on the way to 18 points, leading the forwards. Romell Quioto (SJ, $8.1) scored a goal and had two assists on the way to 16 points, and Johnny Russell (SKC, $9.0) scored 15 points on the same. The remaining United scorers were Yordy Reyna ($6.3) with 2 points, and both Griffin Yow ($4.0) and Ramon Abila ($4.4) with 1.

Looking Ahead

Nashville, the Red Bulls, New York, New England, and Chicago play twice, and everyone else plays once. Joe Willis (NSH, $9.1) may be on the road, but I like him in goal for his games at Miami and Chicago, and in defense I like Colorado’s Keegan Rosenberry ($8.5) vs. Toronto. Carles Gil (NE, $12.4) looks great in midfield @Chicago and vs. Orlando, and [gulp] Ola Kamara is your man at forward vs. Cincinnati.
