As part of our wrap up of the 2019 season, we asked several members of the FC Dallas media to join us for a 6-part roundtable series. Our second topic for discussion is “Offensive MVP.”
What a week! FC Dallas go to Seattle in a playoff game everyone really wrote off. Despite a hell of a fightback, a couple of sloppy goals consign the Huntsmen to a 4-3 loss in extra time. North Texas SC did leave local soccer fans delighted as they won the USL League One final 1-0 over John Harkes’ Greenville Triumph. NTX Rayados also did what they do best and beat Innocentes FC 7-0 in the US Open Cup qualifiers. If you’re not watching some level of live local soccer, you’re just doing it wrong!
