Defending the Championship

Too bad it’s the reserve cup. But you go with what you got.

MLSnet has finally updated the reserve page on their website. The last update was June 18th. That’s a long time, but the method to the madness is that MLS is only updating the page every month. Apparently MLS has decided that though it was a good idea to spend money on the extra players to form a reserve division, it is a bad idea to spend money on a web-developer taking an extra hour each week to update the only comprehensive table for the division.

I can understand that the league doesn’t make any of the large moves banded about on BigSoccer (please don’t make me repeat any of them). But if you are going to go for small and steady, you better get small right. That’s all I’m saying and the end of my rant.

Anyways, MLSnet has finally updated the reserve page on their website. It seems appropriate to look at how the DCU Reserve is defending its title. Especially considering MLS updated the page the day before DCU Reserve beat Salt Lake City’s reserves.

DC currently has 15 points in 7 games and 15 point available for a possible 30 points.

Colorado has 12 points in 5 games and 21 points available for a possible 33 points. However DC and Colorado play on August 20th in what could be the most important game of the reserve season. If United beats them and wins all the rest of its games DC will win on the tiebreaker no matter what.

Kansas currently has 18 points in 8 games and 12 points available for a possible 30 points. However United wins the tiebreaker due to a 4-1 win on May 14th.

Basically DCU Reserve has its destiny in its own hands but must run the table from here on in. They will need our help to do it (well maybe not, but we love to think they do) so come out to the RFK reserve field and get up close and personal to the action. All games are at 10:00 AM. Directions in PDF.

And don't forget the Houston roadtrippers will be at the final reserve match on 10/1 in Houston.

Hopefully we'll be celebrating a second title!

I haven't seen the Houston roadtrippers, but I'd wager that our hard-core reserve attendees could whip 'em in a Sunday morning donut-eating contest.

I'm just sayin'.
