Major League Soccer

Andrew Jacobson (FC Dallas) – started and worked a full 90 minutes in the middle for yet another FC Dallas shutout, this time a 0-0 draw with Real Salt Lake, gathered a yellow card in the process (53rd minute) for persistent fouls
Chris Seitz (FC Dallas) – dressed but did not play in the Hoops’ 0-0 tie with Real Salt Lake
Fred (DC United) – played the second half in a 2-1 friendly loss to Dutch powers AFC Ajax; Fred had the best chance in the second half for United to equalize but it missed; an 87th minute goal from Vurnon Anita gave Ajax the 2-1 win after Blake Brettschneider had found a 58th equalizer for DC
Shea Salinas (Vancouver) – started and played 83 minutes (replaced by Russell Teibert) in the Caps 1-1 Nutrilite Canadian Championship first leg tie vs. Toronto FC; the winner (second leg is tomorrow night) will qualify for the 2011-2012 CONCACAF Champions League
Alejandro Moreno (Chivas USA) – couldn’t solve the puzzle of the Galaxy’s backline in a 1-0 Superclasico loss; started and went the whole 90 minutes; called up for internationa duty with Venezuela as they prepare for July’s Copa America
Shavar Thomas (Sporting KC) – Kansas City continues to lose and their June 9th stadium opening date can’t come soon enough; dropped a 1-0 loss to Seattle, Thomas did not dress and has barely been playing as of late; still called up for Jamaica’s Gold Cup 2011 campaign
Brian Perk (Los Angeles) – did not dress for the 1-0 Superclasico win over Chivas USA

Brad Knighton (Carolina) – the Railhawks can’t stop winning and Knighton is a huge part of that; he leads the league in saves; started and worked a 3-0  shutout against defending NASL champions Puerto Rico; made some big saves in the process; the Railhawks are now 6-1-1 and still sit in first

Nick Zimmerman (Carolina) – started and went 72 minutes (replaced by Brian Farber) in an impressive 3-0 win over Puerto Rico; Etienne Barbara and Jorge Campos continue to register all of the offensive production but according to Railhawks fans, Zimmerman has been just as influential

Eduardo Coudet (Fort Lauderdale) – started and went 90 minutes in a 0-0 deadlock with the Atlanta Silverbacks; had an opportunity to put Fort Lauderdale up early in the second half but the Strikers had to settle for a tie, now 1-2-4

Toni Stahl (Fort Lauderdale) – started and went all 90 in the Strikers’ 0-0 tie with Atlanta; the roster card has him listed as a midfielder in this one as well; the Strikers will face MLS-bound Montreal next on May 28th

Cristian Arrieta (Fort Lauderdale) – Arrieta started for the first time, working 90 minutes in the midfield for the Strikers’ 0-0 tie with Atlanta; almost assisted on what could have been the gamewinner early on; Arrieta was playing one of his former squads, he won USL MVP with Puerto Rico

JT Noone (Harrisburg) – started for Harrisburg in a 3-1 loss to Orlando City; went the full 90 minutes, registering a shot on goal in the process; the City Islanders fall to 1-2-2


Michael Orozco Fiscal (San Luis FC) – Pumas wins the Mexican Clausura; no word on Orozco Fiscal

Dave Myrie (Limon FC) – Myrie was named in Los Ticos’ 31-player preliminary squad for the 2011 Gold Cup early on but did NOT make the final roster released on May 21st; Myrie will most likely get a call up for July’s Copa America however; Los Ticos are set to take on Nigeria this weekend in a Gold Cup tune-up
