ST JOHN put up 90 points this round, leading the league. GSFC is still hanging onto the lead at the top of the overall table, with a four-point advantage.
Roman Burki (STL, $6.5) led the goalkeepers with 11 points on a clean sheet. Trailing him were David Bingham (POR, $6.4) with a clean sheet and 9 points, and Steve Clark (HOU, $6.2) with a clean sheet and 8. For DCU, Tyler Miller ($5.5) scored 3 points.
Miami’s Franco Negri ($6.3) tallied a goal and an assist, leading the defenders with 12 points. Close behind was the 11-point pair of Raheem Edwards (LA, $6.9) and Zac McGraw (POR, $6.7), who both kept a clean sheet. The United defense featured Ruan ($5.3) with 5 points, followed by the pair of Derrick Williams ($5.8) and Jacob Greene ($4.1) with 3 points, and Steven Birnbaum ($5.5) with 2 points.
Leo Chu (SEA, $5.1) put up four assists, leading the midfielders with 19 points, while Alexandru Matan (CLB, $8.2) amassed three assists of his own for 14 points. Martin Ojeda (ORL, $6.5) rounded out the top three with 13 points on a goal and an assist. The D.C. midfield was led by Russel Canouse ($6.4) with 5 points, followed by Chris Durkin ($7.1) with 4, both Mateusz Klich ($9.4) and Jackson Hopkins ($4.8) with 3, Ted Ku-Dipietro ($5.3) with 2, and Yamil Asad ($5.9) with 1.
Jordan Morris (SEA, $9.6) scored four goals on the way to 24 points, leading the forwards and all players. Meanwhile, Joao Klauss (STL, $10.1) added an assist to his brace for 17 points, and Cristian Ramirez (CLB, $7.0) scored two goals and 13 points. Christian Benteke ($8.5) led the DCU forwards with 9 points, ahead of Nigel Robertha ($4.4) and Taxi Fountas ($7.7), who each scored 1.
Austin is on bye, and everyone else plays once. Assuming Andre Blake (PHI, $6.0) is back and starting, he looks good in goal vs. Kansas City, and I like Sergi Palencia (LA, $6.4) in defense at Colorado. Cristian Espinoza (SJ, $10.5) is a good bet in midfield vs. Houston, and I like Luiz Araujo (ATL, $9.4) to get back on the scoresheet vs. the Red Bulls.
