Coming off a series of quality performances in Leagues Cup, 10th in the West FC Dallas (30 points, 8-9-6) hosts 7th in the West Austin FC (32 points, 9-10-5) at 7:30 pm tonight at Toyota Stadium.
5th in the West FC Dallas (26 points, 7-6-5) travels to Austin to take on the 12th in the West Groots (19 points, 5-8-4) at 8:30 pm at Q2 Stadium. The kickoff is a time change, slid back an hour due to the heat.
Any road win is good but a road win down in Austin is particularly good. Dallas jumps back to 4th on 18 points (5-3-3).
It was a great surprise yesterday to hear from a long-time contributor to 3rd Degree, John Rivera. He’s a photographer from South Texas who has been kind enough to contribute photos to us since the early 2000s.
