The first two scorers, Dominique Badji and Dillon Powers, were nominated in the MLSSoccer.com Team of the Week. Talking about the rookie striker, they wrote: “Badji's work up front was tremendous all game, hounding the Dallas back line. Of course, it started with a goal in the second minute.”
They said this about Powers: “Set up the first goal with a pinpoint cross and then scored on a play brimming with individual talent.”
