It was GSFC setting the pace this round, putting up 91 points as you see above. At the very top of the table, Dukes SC has a narrow, two-point lead.

Positional Leaders

Colorado’s William Yarbrough ($5.9) led the goalkeepers with 11 points on the strength of a clean sheet. Hot on his tail was the clean sheet-pair of Dorde Petrovic (NE, $7.5) and Drake Callender (MIA, $7.0), with 10 points. DCU’s Tyler Miller ($5.3) scored 2 points.

A pair of players split the positional and overall scoring lead on 17 points, with Alex Roldan (SEA, $7.0) tallying two assists to go with a clean sheet, and Brandon Bye (NE, $7.0) doing this tonight — “this” being a clean sheet, assist, and a goal. Julian Gressel (VAN, $8.2) was third with a clean sheet, an assist, and 14 points. For United, Andy Najar ($5.2) and Steven Birnbaum ($5.0) led with 2 points; followed by Pedro Santos ($6.3), Mohanad Jeahze ($5.8), and Derrick Williams ($5.3) with 1 point each.

Lucas Zelarayan (CLB, $9.7) led the midfielders with two goals and 14 points. Behind him were Dylan Borrero (NE, $7.4) with 12 points on a goal and an assist, and Matheus Rossetto (ATL, $7.0) with a goal and 10 points. The D.C. midfield was paced by the trio of Mateusz Klich ($8.8), Russell Canouse ($6.9) and Victor Palsson ($6.9) with 5 points each; followed by Chris Durkin ($6.1) with 2, and both Ted Ku-Dipietro ($6.3) and Jackson Hopkins ($5.4) with 1.

Jesus Ferreira (DAL, $8.9) scored twice, leading the forwards with 14 points, ahead of Jeremy Ebobisse (SJ, $9.3) and Carlos Vela (LA, $9.5), who both contributed a goal, an assist, and 11 points. The United forwards were Christian Benteke ($8.4) and Nigel Robertha ($5.2) with 2 points each.

Looking Ahead
It’s not clear to me why Andre Blake’s (PHI, $6.4) salary is so low, so it’s a good time to get him in goal vs. Chicago, and I’m still riding with Andrew Gutman (ATL, $6.5) in defense at Charlotte. I like Jackson Yueill (SJ, $7.3) as a budget option in midfield vs. Colorado, and I’m backing Julian Carranza (PHI, $9.4) at forward to get back amongst the goals.
