FCD on loan: Baladez scores game-winner, Sanchez named NASL Player of the Week

By Scott Brown

Last week was a good one for the FC Dallas players out on loan. In the NASL, Richard Sanchez and Bradlee Baladez both made starts on the road against the Atlanta Silverbacks. Baladez played 60 minutes at forward for the Strikers and scored the game-winning goal off a header in the 34th minute. Sanchez, meanwhile, played the full 90 minutes in goal for Ft. Lauderdale and made several clutch saves to pick up the clean sheet in the 1-0 victory. The young 'keeper was named the NASL Player of the Week for his performance. Ft. Lauderdale is now 2-2-0 on the season. The FC Dallas Homegrown duo will have their next shot at action Friday night when the Strikers host the Carolina Railhawks.

Match Highlights: Atlanta 0, Ft. Lauderdale 1

In Costa Rica, after making 16 starts in 17 appearances for Deportivo Saprissa last season, defender Moises Hernandez has yet to make an appearance through the club's first four Primera Division matches this season. Saprissa is currently 3-1-0 with a match against Uruguay coming up this Sunday.

In Sweden, midfielder Bobby Warshaw made his debut for Ängelholms FF on Wednesday, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3-1 Swedish Cup win over Skövde AIK. Warshaw also made the gameday roster for the club's league match against Jönköpings Södra, but was an unused sub in the 2-2 draw. Ängelholms FF is 7-7-6 this season with a league road match against GIF Sundsvall coming up on Wednesday night.
