Is it just me or was the bunch of two-game players kind of a letdown?

Just one team scored more than 100 points, and that was ddoub92, with 101 points. Chris Wondolowski (SJ, $10.9) set the pace with an armband-aided 36 points on two goals. Trailing him was Fabian Castillo (DAL, $10.8), who scored a goal and an assist for 13 points, while David Bingham (SJ, $6.

When FC Dallas decided to pick up the option on Chris Seitz's contract for the 2013 season, the current results are exactly what they expected from FCD's current No. 2 goalkeeper.

Dallas wanted someone who could fill in when starter Raul Fernandez either needed a breather or had to play for the Peruvian national team.

Zach Loyd as the lone expiring contract for FCD

During a brief conversation with FC Dallas technical director Fernando Clavijo early last week, he confirmed that right back Zach Loyd is the only current member of the FCD roster whose contract will expire at the end of the season.

Loyd and the club did not reach terms on a contract extension during the off-season and it is club policy under Clavijo not to do extensions during the season.

Some were surprised to see Chris Seitz as the starting goalkeeper for FC Dallas on Sunday night. Apparently, starter Raul Fernandez had been released to join the Peruvian national team for a Wednesday friendly in South Korea. So, Seitz, whose last action as a starter had been the 2-1 win over D.C.

One of the true surprises when the first 11 for Saturday's match between D.C. United and FC Dallas was revealed was that Chris Seitz and not Raul Fernandez would be between the posts for FCD.

Fernandez had started six straight games, but Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman had good reason for giving Seitz the nod against the Black-and-Red.

That was a great result for us. We started off the game very well, scored a very nice goal. We went into a 4-4-2 formation so we could play Eric [Hassli] and Blas [Perez] together. We had speed on both flanks with Jackson and Fabian [Castillo].

FC Dallas 2-1 D.C. United - Ben Olsen changes nearly everything, but the result is the same

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

Five changes to the lineup, a new twist on the formation and a focus on attacking the game early. Ben Olsen finally threw the kitchen sink at D.C. United's six-game losing streak on Saturday night. But it wasn't enough, as the Black-and-Red dropped a 2-1 result to FC Dallas in Frisco, Tex.

United started well enough, controlling possession through the midfield trio of Perry Kitchen, Raphael Augusto and Dwayne De Rosario and pressing Dallas all around the field.

Paid Their Dues: USL PRO Guys Making an Impact

USL PRO trio has a good week, while it's misery for a few former Union players on winless MLS teams.

Chris Seitz got 90 minutes in goal on Saturday as Dallas defeated Toronto 2-1. Andrew Jacobson came off the bench in second half stoppage time. He is likely to continue doing so, as Hendry Thomas and Michel seem to be the preferred defensive midfield pairing.

Justin Mapp's 84th minute assist on Karl Ouimette's winner put a serious dent in his former club's playoff hopes. The assist was Mapp's fourth against the Union since being selected by Montreal in the 2011 Expansion Draft. The Impact control their own playoff destiny, as a win against Toronto on Saturday would likely give them the third playoff spot in the East.

Michael Orozco got the nod at right back over Geoff Cameron, who was picked to fill in for an injured Michael Bradley only moments later.

Schellas Hyndman, FC Dallas head coach
General thoughts on the match...
It was really disappointing. I wish we could have gotten another goal. The longer the game was going, the more [Portland] was building confidence. They put us under pressure at the end of the first half with some services and in the second half, we came out and just made some uncharacteristic mistakes in the back that led to the defeat.
