In the DCU midfield was Patrick Nyarko ($7.4) with 9 points; followed by Nick DeLeon ($6.3) with 4; the trio of Lamar Neagle ($8.0), Rob Vincent ($5.9), and Lloyd Sam ($9.2) with 2 points; and Julian Buescher ($5.5) with 1.

Forwards

Sebastian Giovinco's 25 points led all forwards and all scorers.

For United, Kennedy Igboananike ($7.9) and Patrick Mullins ($6.3) scored two points, and Luciano Acosta ($8.4) scored 1.

Looking Ahead

Everyone plays once this round, and games start on Friday. Try on Josh Saunders in goal at Columbus, and get Walker Zimmerman (DAL, $6.7) back in defense at home against Kansas City. Chris Pontius (PHI, $7.5) is your midfield man at New England, and Cyle Larin (ORL, $9.6) is a good bet to get back among the goals at Chicago.
