It's unlikely that even J.J. Koval expected to be starting this early into the season for the San Jose Earthquakes.

The 21-year-old Stanford product started his second straight match in central midfield for the Earthquakes and played all 90 minutes in the 'Quakes 1-0 victory against Chivas USA.

The Colorado Rapids are more than a staunch defense, at least for one night.

Kevin Doyle started the scoring early, but Cubo Torres managed to sneak one in to level the score before half time. Marlon Hairston came alive in the second half and buried a couple easy goals as theRapids saw a rare burst of attacking form.

Flipping the coin at the 5-1 win in 2013
I'd be happy to have another result like that one tomorrow night. Without ex-Sounder Marco Pappa though, that might be asking a lot. Of course Seattle is beat up as well, so it could be an interesting game. Game time tomorrow is 7pm so the tailgate starts at 4.

Rapids trade down from the 11 pick to the 12 pick with the Revs and get the #19 pick, last in the 1st round, as well (and rumored some allocation money).

With the 12th pick they take midfielder Marlon Hairston out of Lousiville. He's a Generation Adidas player so he does not count against the cap and will automatically be protected in next off-season's expansion draft.

MLS Mock Draft: Union select Marlon Hairston with No. 6 pick

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

Louisville midfielder Marlon Hairston has scored six goals and delivered five assists in 39 games for the Cardinals in two seasons.

After last season's SuperDraft where the Union ended up with Leo Fernandez and a collection of guys who didn't make the squad, it's hard to be overly optimistic about the potential returns even with a pair of picks in the first two rounds, but creativity in the midfield, a left back, target forward to spell Conor Casey and defensive depth would be the areas the Union should look to fill with their eight picks.

SBI QOTD: Which USMNT newcomer are you most excited to see in January camp?

Soccer By Ives at related • 0 views

The U.S. Men's National Team January Camp has always been about giving new faces a look.

There's even more importance on that this year as the USMNT looks to identity talent and build a core over the next four years to avoid another World Cup failure.

USMNT interim manager Dave Sarachan has called in 10 players for the January camp that have not previously been involved in a national team camp.
