October 6, 2017 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - FC Dallas
Where Was This One On The Original Schedule? Saturday's match was originally scheduled for April 1 (no foolin'). It was moved because of FC Dallas' participation in CONCACAF Champions League play earlier this year. This will be the second time in the last 11 days Colorado and Dallas have faced each other (FCD posted a 2-0 win on 9/27).

Good In Goal FC Dallas goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez notched five saves and earned a shutout in FC Dallas' draw against Orlando. It was Gonzalez's second straight shutout and his third in the last four games. The 22-year old now has nine shutouts in 2017, tied for third-most in MLS.
