NewYorkBlue led the league this round, putting up a total of 132 points. GSFC still leads the league overall, stretching their lead to 14 points.

Positional Leaders

Djordje Petrovic (NE, $9.1) led the goalkeepers, keeping a clean sheet and somehow adding an assist on the way to 13 points. Behind him, Patrick Schulte (CLB, $5.3) kept a clean sheet for 10 points, and Joe Willis (NSH, $9.7) did the same for 9 points. D.C.’s Tyler Miller ($6.3) scored 2 points.

Vancouver’s Julian Gressel ($10.2) had an assist and a clean sheet on the way to 15 points, leading the defenders. Trailing him was a pair of Columbus defenders, as Will Sands ($5.7) had 14 points on a clean sheet and an assist, and Mohamed Farsi ($6.8) did the same for 11 points. The United defense featured Donovan Pines ($6.5) with 4 points, both Steven Birnbaum ($6.3) and Pedro Santos ($5.6) with 3 points, Ruan ($6.2) with 2, and Mohanad Jeahze ($4.6) with 1.

New England’s Carles Gil ($10.1) scored 14 points, leading the midfielders with a goal and an assist, ahead of Hector Herrera (HOU, $10.5), whose own goal and assist led to 13 points, despite getting sent off. Lucas Zelarayan (CLB, $11.2) rounded out the top three with a goal and 11 points. The scoring DCU midfielders were Victor Palsson ($6.5) and Russell Canouse ($6.3) with 3 points each, and Ted Ku-DiPietro ($4.5) with 1.

Denis Bouanga (LA, $9.9) led the forwards and all players with 18 points on the strength of a hat trick. Behind him, Amine Bassi (HOU, $7.3) scored two goals and 14 points, and Kei Kamara (CHI, $6.3) chimed in with two goals, 13 points, and apparently a time machine. For D.C. it was Taxi Fountas ($6.9) with 3 points, and Christian Benteke ($8.4) with 2.

Looking Ahead
Miami is on bye, and everyone else plays once. In goal, I like John McCarthy (LA, $8.1) at the Galaxy, and in defense I like Rodrigues (SJ, $8.6) vs. Kansas City. Daniel Gazdag (PHI, $9.9) is the midfielder to watch at Chicago, but keep an eye out for his status after their midweek CCL match, and Jesus Ferreira (DAL, $9.4) looks strong at forward vs. Real Salt Lake.
